 LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a Greyhound bus left the highway, flipped and landed on its side in a cornfield in southwest Ohio and 34 people have been hurt, with injuries ranging from minor to severe.

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 at approximately 4 a.m. 

Authorities say 34 people have been transported to area hospitals. They say six were taken from the scene by medical helicopters, and 28 others taken to hospitals by ambulance. 

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

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