HOLT, Mo. (AP) -- Several students and a bus driver have been treated and released from a hospital after the school bus they were in went off a highway in northwest Missouri.

David Feess, spokesman for Liberty Hospital, said 18 people were taken to the hospital after the bus carrying about 24 secondary school children in the Kearney School District crashed Thursday morning.

Feess said all 18 had been treated and released by about noon.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe says the bus ran off Missouri 33 south of Holt after going across a narrow bridge. Lowe says troopers believe the bus hit guardrail.
  
He said the bus grazed one tree before hitting another and stopping in the creekbed.
