Loaded Fauquier school bus evacuated after accident on icy road

Friday, Jan. 10 | By Mark Grandstaff | Google+
Icy Friday morning roads led to a close call to a bus full of Fauquier County public school students.

At 8:42 a.m., a bus laden with about 20 students slid off the side of the road on Hillside Drive near Grays Mill Road. Transportation workers and first responders thought the bus was in danger of falling on its side, so they off-loaded the students as a precaution, said Lt. James Hartman, spokesman for the Fauquier County Sheriff's Office.

The students were then transferred to another bus. There were no injuries in the accident, Hartman said.
