HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A Hattiesburg school bus carrying more than one dozen students home from school Tuesday afternoon tipped over into a ditch when the driver tried to avoid another car on a narrow street. 

The wreck happened about 3:50 p.m. on Short Columbia Street behind the old Hercules plant. Hattiesburg School District officials said 15 students were on the bus at the time. 

They say no one was hurt, but three students were transported to the hospital as a precaution. 

At around 5:15 p.m., a wrecker was able to get the bus back on the road and it left under its own power.
