KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A school bus full of students on a field trip was involved in a multiple-vehicle wreck in downtown.

The accident happened about 12:15 p.m. Thursday on southbound 71 Highway at 11th Street.

The eighth-grade students onboard the bus from Council Grove, KS, were not injured. The students were headed to a Kansas City Royals game on a field trip.

One of the parents, who was following the bus, was involved in the accident. The mother hurt her face and was transported to an area hospital. 

A replacement bus was ordered and got the students to the game.

Several lanes of the highway were closed as road crews cleared the accident.
