CHERITON-- Eight children sustained minor injuries when their school bus crashed in Northampton County around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to State Trooper L. Sturgis.

Sturgis says the children were on their way home from Kiptopeke Elementary School when the school bus hit a ditch on Seaside Road, just north of Cheriton. The driver over-corrected and the bus went over on its side.

The eight children on the bus were taken to Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. All of the children have now been released to their parents.

The bus driver was charged with failing to drive within the confines of the roadway.
