I think the bus driver fell asleep at the wheel and hit the side of the road and flipped!

We drove by just as a large silver tow truck pulled the bus upright about 10 a.m. The road had a slight curve to the left, just past the Albertville freeway overpass. Apparently the bus went straight and didn't turn at all, drifting straight off the road then tipping over to the right.
Deepest sympathy and prayers are with you Pelican Rapids.
