August 30, 2012 (BARTLETT, Ill.)

The crash happened just before 9 a.m. Thursday morning near Oak Avenue and Route 20.

No students were on the District U-46 school bus at the time.

Police say a vehicle hit the bus, causing it to turn over.

The bus driver was taken to the hospital with a head injury.

Three schools near the area were placed on "secure building" status. That meant nobody could come into or leave the school.
