At least four people were injured when an experimental rocket exploded at the University of Idaho, school officials said early Friday.
The incident occurred in a school parking lot where the victims were testing the rocket near the school's steam plant, when it malfunctioned, said Jodi Walker, a campus spokeswoman.
The students were transported to a local hospital with undisclosed injuries. They "were alert and communicating" with the university's staff, according to a statement released by the university.
