NEW CANEY, Texas -- Rowdy middle school-aged students in the back of a school bus distracted the bus driver who briefly took her eyes off the road and veered off the roadway Wednesday.

The bus was traveling eastbound on Martin Road around 4:30 p.m. when it veered on its side.

A total of 27 students were onboard the bus. Five were transported to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

They were all expected to be OK.
