CARROLLTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police say two pre-school-aged children were pronounced dead Monday at the scene of an overturned school bus on a narrow country road in northern Kentucky.

Trooper Brad Arterburn said the bus carrying nine children headed home from the pre-school program Head Start on Monday flipped onto its side and struck a tree.

He said four children were taken to hospitals and three were released to their parents.

The driver of the bus escaped unharmed. He said an adult aide also on the bus was also transported to the hospital.

Carrollton was also the site of a school bus crash in 1988 that killed 24 children and three adults.

That bus was being used for a church activity and was returning after a day at an amusement park when it was hit head-on by a drunken driver. That remains the nation's deadliest drunken-driving collision.
