(CNN) — A rollover accident of a bus carrying a high school cheerleading team injured students, sponsors and the driver of the bus on Friday, according to the school district.

The Elkhart Independent School District said the cheerleaders were heading to a game in Clifton when the bus flipped in a single vehicle accident and landed in a ditch off a highway outside Elkhart. Those injured were transported to a local hospital on Friday afternoon.

The accident took place on Highway 294 near Lake View Methodist Conference Center outside the city.
