WADSWORTH, Ill. (AP) — Authorities say a school bus carrying around two dozen elementary school children has overturned in northern Illinois.

Lake County Sherriff's Office spokeswoman Sgt. Sara Balmes (bahl-MEHS') says there was no immediate word on any injuries.

Fire department personnel were arriving at the scene near the village of Wadsworth.

Balmes says the bus was involved in an accident, possibly with one other vehicle. She says bus was left lying on its side.

The bus was taking 25 children to Newport Elementary School in Wadsworth, which is about 45 miles north of Chicago.
