    A bus carrying an Indiana high school basketball team overturned while traveling to a state tournament Saturday, NBC News reported.

    Police said the bus rolled over after getting side-swiped by a Kia on an interstate near Roselaw, Indiana, about 30 miles south of Gary.

    The driver of the Kia dropped a drink and when she tried to catch it, she swerved into the bus.

    The bus was carrying 21 students and six adults from Griffith High School. All 27 people, as well as the Kia's driver and her passenger were taken to hospital. None of the injuries were life threatning, police said.
