PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (WAFB) - Authorities are investigating a crash involving a bus carrying workers Wednesday morning.

It happened at roughly 7 a.m. on Airline Highway at Duplessis Road in Prairieville.

Officials said the school bus was carrying more than 20 work release inmates, not students.

Two people were reportedly taken to the hospital.

Troopers with the Louisiana State Police are investigating the case.

NOTE: This report originally stated that the individuals on the bus were work release inmates. We have since been informed that they were not inmates, but rather workers who were paid to be part of the flood cleaning effort.
