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.
Shannon Young is live at the Roanoke Regional Airport with more.
