Icy roads are believed to have caused a school bus to flip on its side this morning in Eastern Carolina.
State troopers say the accident happened around 10:05 a.m. on Morristown Road, that's northwest of Edenton in Chowan County.
First Sergeant R.P. Hooks says bus #50 from John A. Holmes High School went around a curve and possibly struck an icy patch. The bus went down an embankment and rolled over on its right side.
The Sheriff's Office says eight students and a driver went to the hospital.
The school system says all the children on the bus are okay and released from the hospital.
