A Powell school bus driver and student were not injured when a bus slid off a slick road around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The bus had just made its first stop and went around the corner on Road 8 and Lane 4.
It traveled about 300 yards down the road, bucking a few drifts, said Stephen Janes, transportation supervisor for Park County School District 1, then ‘a big wind gust came up [and] pushed the bus to the shoulder.
The soft shoulder gave out and sucked the bus into the ravine.’ Two people on the bus — the driver and one student — were OK, Janes said. ‘We were able to get the bus pulled out a little later in the day,’ he said.
The bus has some damage to the driver’s side, Janes said, ‘but should be back on the road soon.’
