The bus was carrying students returning from a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida, Malone said.

The bus ended up overturned about 50 feet down the ravine underneath a bridge, police said.

The injured were rushed by medivac and ambulance to several hospitals to be treated for their injuries, Mack said.

A bus carrying Texas students whose bandmates were involved in the wreck of another bus on Interstate 10 in Alabama has returned to a Houston-area high school.

Pictured: The scene of an early morning bus wreck on I-10 early Tuesday morning. "Texas is prepared to offer any assistance necessary as we rally around the entire Channelview High School community during this hard time". The driver died and about three dozen others went to hospitals.

"The bus came to rest on one side down in the ravine". According to CBS News affiliate WKRG-TV, the bus driver, Harry Caligone, was killed in the crash. Caligone's wife told KTRK she didn't think it was human error that caused the crash.

More than 40 passengers on the bus were taken to 10 hospitals across southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle to be evaluated, but the total number of injuries wasn't yet known.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration records show that in the past two years, First Class Tours has been involved in four other crashes, including a fatal crash in Houston in May 2017.

Traffic was shut down on both sides of the interstate.

Major Anthony Lowery with Baldwin County Sheriff's Office tells News 5 multiple helicopters are responding to an accident involving a bus on I-10 near mile marker 57.

Local media has also reported fears that high school-aged children were on board at the time.

WEAR-TV reports that the charter bus was carrying at least 52 people and the crash happened around 6 a.m. The interstate was closed for hours as officials rescued the victims. Alabama and Florida state troopers were diverting motorists off the interstate onto Highway 90.
