COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — State police say one child was injured in a school bus crash around the Idaho County town of Riggins.

The one-vehicle crash occurred around 5:30 p.m. Thursday on a road in the area, located about 125 miles south of Coeur d’Alene. Police say 66-year-old driver Larry C. Barnard was carrying seven children on his bus when he was distracted by one of them. The vehicle drifted left and as the driver corrected to the right, tires went off the road and the bus eventually rolled on its right side.

The state police dispatch office says one child was hospitalized with injuries, but declined to provide any further information. Barnard and the six other children on the bus were uninjured. The office says the Riggins man was cited for inattentive driving.
