Published January 13, 2007


Freezing rain fell in the nation's midsection Friday, and temperatures plunged from Minnesota to Las Vegas as a storm rolled in that could leave several states coated in ice.

Bus loses control, 17 students hurt

A school bus driver lost control and struck students as they left a high school Friday, then crashed into a retaining wall, sending 17 children to hospitals, officials said. The driver said the bus developed some sort of mechanical problem that left it "somewhat steerable but out of control," Pennsbury High School principal William Katz said. A 17-year-old girl in critical condition was being transferred to Philadelphia. In New York, a small school bus overturned Friday, sending five children and two adults to the hospital with minor injuries.
