COLUMBIA - The Missouri School for the Deaf said a charter bus crash in Montgomery County caused minor injuries. 

There were 15 students on the bus, all in their early teens. There were also two chaperones on the bus.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said a 70-year-old man was driving the bus. Officials said he was driving too fast on the exit ramp and the bus went off into the grass and flipped.

Parents have been notified and staff members were sent to University Hospital in Columbia to make sure they have signers to communicate.

The Missouri School for the Deaf said the students were ending their extended school year and were headed home.

The bus had five different stops to drop students off in St. Charles, St. Louis, Arnold, Sikeston and Cape Girardeau.

University Hospital says they treated 18 people total, 15 students and three adults. All had not life-threatening injuries. One student had already been treated and released before 4 p.m. Friday.
