Church van carrying children crashes in northeast Oklahoma

ADAIR, Okla. (AP) _ The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a church van headed to Branson, Missouri, crashed on the Will Rogers Turnpike in northeastern Oklahoma, injuring 10 children who were inside.
 
Trooper Dwight Durant says the van crashed just before 1 p.m. Monday after a rear tire blew out and the van rolled over just west of Adair.
 
Durant says three children were transported to a Tulsa hospital and seven were taken to a hospital in Vinita. He said the children range in age from 5 to 15.
 
Authorities say three children are in stable condition. Four children and the van's driver were treated and released from the hospital. One passenger declined treatment. One girl was treated at the scene.
 
The van is owned by the Fresh Fire Outreach Center Church in Shawnee. The church said 20 children and four adults were traveling in three vehicles.
