HIGH RIDGE, Mo. (AP) -- Six St. Louis-area middle school students and their bus driver were taken to a hospital Tuesday with minor injuries Tuesday after the bus ran into a ditch to avoid hitting a car stopped in traffic.

Jefferson County Sheriff's Capt. Ralph Brown said the accident happened about 7 a.m. near High Ridge. The bus was carrying 21 students, ages 11 and 12, to Northwest Valley Middle School.

The driver and six students were taken to a hospital by ambulance. The other students and an adult bus monitor were taken to the hospital by another bus for precautionary reasons.
