At least three students were killed Monday when a school bus carrying about 20 high school students plunged 30 feet off an interstate and overturned, injuring, a schools official said.

The bus ended up below the I-565 overpass.

"Huntsville has never seen an accident like this," police spokesman Wendell Johnson said.

"Right now, we're just trying to stabilize injuries, save lives and we'll get more information as it's available."

City schools spokesman Keith Ward told local TV station WAFF that two students were killed in the accident.

He said the bus had left the Huntsville Center for Technology. He said about 20 students were aboard when it plunged 30 feet from the road.

State trooper spokeswoman Dorris Teague said she did not have any immediate information on the accident.

Huntsville Times photographer Eric Schultz said sheets had been spread near the wrecked bus.
