(CNN) — A bus carrying National Guard troops overturned Friday on state Highway 150 in Mooresville, North Carolina, according to an Iredell County emergency dispatcher.

Emergency personnel were responding Friday afternoon, and they expect to transport at least three people for medical attention, dispatcher Marc Pruitt said.

The troops were returning from overseas, CNN affiliate WBTV reported. The unit was heading from Charlotte Douglas International Airport to the city of Salisbury, about 20 miles east-northeast of Mooresville, according to CNN affiliate WCNC.
