The bus was carrying 31 offenders and two correctional officers. All were being transported from the scene with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, the department said.

The injured were being taken to area hospitals as well as a prison infirmary unit.

A picture of the incident, which took place about 120 miles north of Austin, posted on the website of local TV station KWTX showed a bus perched on its side just off the roadway.
