BEIJING - A minibus carrying 14 students in Langfang, a city in Hebei province, rolled over on Friday afternoon, leaving four students with fractures and two others with abrasions, authorities said.

The bus fell into a roadside ditch after having a blow-out in its left rear tire as it returned from the Gu'an No 4 School, a boarding school in Langfang's Gu'an county at about 3:50 pm, authorities said.

"The driver, Liu Zhenjiang, came to pick up his son after a snowfall and was bringing other children back to his and neighboring villages," said an official surnamed Liu with the local communications department, who declined to tell his full name.

The minibus was overloaded, carrying 14 students and an adult instead of the eight passengers maximum, according to the police investigation.

Liu, the driver, was being questioned by police.

All six injured students were brought to a hospital soon after the accident and they have no life-threatening injuries. "Their parents are staying with them in the hospital," Liu, of the communications department, said.
