Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
We're breaking away from C-B-S News special coverage of the American Airlines crash in New York for an update on some local news.
More than a dozen students, and the driver of a tractor-trailer, were injured this morning, when a truck and school bus collided on Route 460 in Bedford County.
It appears that none of them suffered life-threatening injuries, but some remain in the hospital this afternoon.

Today's crash of American Airlines Flight 587 could cause problems for local air travellers.
The F-B-I thinks there was an explosion aboard the plane that went down this morning in Queens, New York.
As a result of the crash, Mayor Rudy Giuilani closed all New York City airports. While some could reopen soon, some passengers in our region may find their flight plans have changed.
