EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Police say a bus carrying the Murray State University women's track team has rolled over on icy Interstate 69 in southwest Indiana, injuring four people.

Murray State spokeswoman Sherry McClain says the team was traveling in two minibuses from the college in Murray, Ky., to a meet at Indiana University in Bloomington Friday morning when 1 of the buses hit a patch of ice and turned on its side.

She says four students had minor injuries and two were taken to a nearby hospital for observation.

Murray State athletics director Allen Ward says the team still plans to participate in the IU Relays Friday and Saturday.

Ward says the bus was carrying nine members of the track team.

Bloomington, Ind., is about 200 miles from Murray, Ky.
