POINTE COUPEE - An overturned school bus closed a portion of La. 420 in Pointe Coupee Parish for a time this morning.

According to the sheriff's office, only the driver was on board when it wrecked earlier this morning. They had minor injuries, and were taken to a nearby hospital.

The highway was closed just east of where it meets La. 1 for an hour while workers cleared the wreck from the roadway.

There's still no word on exactly what caused the wreck.
