A school bus taking 8th grade students to an event in Las Cruces crashed in Lincoln County Wednesday morning, causing minor injuries.

The Roswell Independent School District said the bus was carrying students from Mountain View Middle School when it “ran off the road and into a ditch” between Mescalero and Tularosa. It rolled over onto its side.

It said only minor injuries were reported and students were taken to hospitals for treatment and assessment.

New Mexico State Police is still investigating what led up to the crash.

“As a precaution, the twenty-five students and three adults on board were all transported by ground to area hospitals for injuries not believed to be life-threatening,” Officer Ray Wilson, a State Police spokesman, wrote in a news release. “State Police does not release information on specific injuries suffered by victims.”

New Mexico Department of Transportation said the westbound lane of US 70 was closed while the students were escorted off the bus.
