GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — Officials say 27 out of the 28 people hospitalized following a Colorado school bus crash last week have been released from hospitals.

The Greeley Tribune reports one student remains at an Aurora hospital after a flatbed truck crashed into the Greeley-Evans School District bus near the small town of Hudson, northeast of Denver.

Authorities say the driver of the truck fell asleep at the wheel. The bus had 35 people on board, including 29 students from Greeley Central and North Ridge high schools returning from a field trip.

The students on the bus were in a credit recovery program. District spokeswoman Theresa Myers says classes for the program will continue as normal, but teachers will work one-on-one with students who are unable to attend because of the crash.
