"Liberty University and Lynchburg Police responded to the scene of the accident immediately, and handled it all with the highest degree of care and professionalism.

Four Liberty University students were taken to the hospital Saturday night with non life threatening injuries after a Liberty University bus crashed.

University officials say 19 students and the driver were on board at the time. The bus reportedly went over a curb toward the entrance of the pedestrian tunnel that goes under Route 460 - connecting to the main campus. A gas line is nearby where the bus crashed - the gas company came out to check on the situation and said it was okay.

It's not clear why the bus went off the road - the crash is still under investigation. We will keep you updated as more information comes into our newsroom.
