8 injured when bus flips in Buchanan County


FAIRBANK, Iowa (AP) - Eight people have suffered minor injuries after the tour bus they were riding in flipped over on a highway near Fairbank in rural Buchanan County.

The Iowa State Patrol says the bus was attempting to turn around when it slid and overturned on its side in a ditch on Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say eight passengers were treated at a Waterloo hospital and released.

Authorities say the bus was carrying a delegation of about three dozen Japanese people in the United States to tour agricultural sites. They say the bus was headed to an ethanol plant in Fairbank.

The bus, which belonged to the Hawkeye Gold Co., was driven by Dominic Langiano of Virden, Ill.
