CAVE SPRINGS, Ark. -

A bus carrying members of Florida State University's track and field team has slid off a state highway in northwest Arkansas, but no one is injured.

Benton County Emergency Manager Robert McGowen told The Associated Press that the rear of the bus slid off Highway 112 while taking a curve in Cave Springs on Sunday.

The 47 people on board were removed safely and taken to a nearby elementary school.

FSU associate sports information director Bob Thomas said the athletes, coaches and support staff had competed in the University of Arkansas' Razorback Invitational track and field meet this weekend. The bus was headed to Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, where the team was to fly back to Tallahassee.
