Three people suffered minor injuries when a school bus carrying student-athletes and a coach rolled over in Ventura County on Friday afternoon, officials said.

The rollover was reported around 2 p.m. on South Mountain Road near Glanville Road in Santa Paula, according to Ventura County Fire Department spokesman Andy VanSciver.

Nine student-athletes, their coach and a driver were on the bus when it rolled over near an orange grove.


Two students from the track team and the bus driver were transported to a hospital with minor injuries, VanSciver said.

VanSciver said it was a “solo accident” and that deputies with the California Highway Patrol were at the scene investigating. Calls to the CHP were not immediately answered.

There was no word as of Friday evening on what caused the rollover.
