WAXAHACHIE — Medics are at the scene of a rollover accident involving a Waxahachie Independent School District bus.

The bus rolled over on Highway 879 northeast of Waxahachie.

A trooper at the scene reported 12 children were injured. Seven of those children were taken to Children's Medical Center of Dallas and five others were taken to Baylor Medical Center at Waxahachie.

The trooper said one child had a broken arm, but there were no life-threatening injuries.

Cedric Harrison said he was called to the scene by his daughter, who was on the bus when it rolled over.

"The bus just came around the curb and it just slipped and flipped over once," he said his daughter told him of the accident.

Harrison said his daughter was OK, only suffering minor cuts.
