PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) _ A school bus carrying 39 elementary and high school pupils went out of control and rolled over, injuring 19 children, authorities said.

A 7-year-old girl was hospitalized in fair condition today.

Eighteen other students on the Lawrence School District bus were treated for minor injuries after the Thursday afternoon accident, officials said.

Driver Gloria Kendzior was ″looking at a disturbance in the back of the bus and took her eyes off the road″ shortly before the accident occurred, Van Buren County Sheriff’s Deputy Sam DeLeo said. She was not hurt.

The bus went down a slight embankment and rolled over, he said.
