(RNN) – A bus crash carrying high school students from Texas crashed into a ravine on the Alabama-Florida line around 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Authorities believe about 52 people were on the charter bus from Houston. It’s unclear how many people are injured, but WKRG-TV reports anywhere from 12 to 20 people.

Interstate 10 is shut down in both directions so that helicopters can transport the injured to area hospitals.

Channelview Independent School District, which is located east of Houston, has confirmed band students from their Channelview High School were on the bus to KHOU in Houston.
