LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities say a Greyhound bus left the highway, flipped and landed on its side in a cornfield in southwest Ohio, injuring 34 people. None of the injuries appear to be life threatening

Officials with the Butler County Emergency Operations Center say in a statement the bus, carrying 51 passengers and the driver, was headed northbound on I-75 early Saturday when it overturned about 26 miles north of Cincinnati just before 4 a.m.

Authorities say 34 people have been transported to area hospitals; six were taken from the scene by medical helicopters, and 28 by ambulance. The injuries ranged from minor to severe.

Officials say the bus left Cincinnati and was bound for Detroit. Passengers not injured were transported back to Cincinnati.

There was no immediate word on the cause of the crash.
