One child died and at least 40 other people, many of them children, suffered injuries in an early morning bus crash.

The crash happened around 2:40 a.m. on I-30, just west of Benton, Arkansas.

Dr. Todd Maxson, surgeon in chief and trauma medical director at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock, said 22 of the 26 children aged 9 to 13 who were admitted to the facility had been released by late Monday afternoon. "I got on the outside and she started handing them to me and the state troopers and state police was coming up and I was handing them to them", Hailey said.

The elementary-school age football team from Orange Mound Youth Association in southeast Memphis had played in a tournament in Dallas over the weekend, according to Memphis TV station WMC.

The children were between 8 and 10 years old and had chaperones accompanying them on the bus, state police spokesman Bill Sadler said. Prosecutors said the driver was on the phone at the time of the crash. There were several teams on the bus at the time that made the trip to represent the area.
