There were also some angry parents here earlier today as they tried to get information about their children.
The six children brought to Kosair suffered a range of injuries, none apparently life threatening.
"Injuries range from broken bones, abdominal injuries and head injuries," said Cis Gruebbel of Kosair Children's Hospital.
"She's OK but her leg's probably the size of two watermelons put together," said Lavetta Todd, whose daughter was admitted to the hospital.
But the bigger issue here was the chaotic scene as frantic parents arrived even before some of the ambulances.
"Your child hurt when the bus tipped over? Is your child hurt when the bus tipped all the way over?" yelled one woman.
Early on, parents had no information about whether their child was at Kosair or even among the injured.
"My daughter left a message. She said the bus turned over and she said hurry up and get here her face was cut up. That's all she said, and I can't reach nobody. I can't reach the school," said Felicia Lyons.
"I want to be able to hold my child, so that she knows I'm here for her and I'm waiting here for her. It's ridiculous," said Cherisse Jones.
School officials later said all parents were notified quickly once EMS provided information as to where students were taken.
"We had to wait for information to get to us, but they got it to us in a very quick manner, considering the fact that you are sending 51 people to the hospital at the same time," said Michael Raisor, chief operating officer for Jefferson Co. Schools.
But for some parents, their anger went beyond the accident itself. They were upset that their children were being bused across town.
"If there are schools closer to where the children live, children should be able to go where they are. Just for things like this. This is the second wreck that my child has been in," said Jones.
"It don't make no sense for them to bus the kids way out there when half the parents don't have transportation," said Jackie Wales.
But school officials today would not directly address concerns about student assignment.
"Our heart always goes out to families in situations like this, and we always want to do what's best for families and students," said Raisor.
School officials say in emergencies like this, parents should first go to the school for information. But some parents say do not have transportation to get to schools that may be across town.
