generic police lights(CNN) — Children were injured when a school bus overturned in eastern Kansas on Wednesday afternoon, Kansas Highway Patrol spokesman Howard Dickinson said.

The number of children injured and information about the severity of the injuries weren’t immediately available after the crash near Bonner Springs.

The bus — carrying 36 girls and a driver — slipped down a hill as it came around a curb and came to rest on its side, Dickinson said.

The crash happened just before 1 p.m. on southbound Kansas Highway 7, CNN affiliate KCTV reported.
