ZOLFO SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in Hardee County say students on a school bus that overturned after a crash received only minor injuries.
 
Eight students were on the bus at the time of the crash Monday morning.
 
Hardee County Fire Chief Robert Clayton tells WFTS TV (http://bit.ly/11qPt1n ) a gas tanker crashed into the back of the bus, causing it to flip over. Only minor injuries have been reported and several of the students were picked up by another school bus.
 
Clayton says they were "very lucky the fuel truck wasn't breached".
