Eight people, including six students and their teacher from Clifton-Clyde High School, were treated and released at a Russell hospital after an accident in northwest Kansas on a hail-covered road.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the two-vehicle accident happened Wednesday on Interstate 70 five miles east of Russell.

The patrol says the school's art teacher, 29-year-old Laura Kay Stunkel, lost control of a sports utility vehicle while driving over hail. The SUV slid across the median into a vehicle driven by 53-year-old Melinda Smith Shawnee.

The Hays Daily News reports the group from Clifton-Clyde High were returning from the Fort Hays State University High School Art Exhibition in Hays. The school has about 80 students in Cloud County in north-central Kansas.
