School bus slides into intersection, causes crash

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis police say a school bus could not stop on an icy hill and slid onto a busy street, causing a crash.

The bus was carrying 29 children Wednesday morning, but no students or the bus driver was hurt. The other drivers also weren't hurt.

The Star Tribune ( ) reports the bus was on its way to Jenny Lind School about 9:30 a.m. when it tried to stop on glare ice at a stop sign in north Minneapolis. The bus slid into the intersection where it collided with a car heading west. That vehicle then struck an eastbound vehicle.

A police spokesman says two other vehicles coming down the hill behind the bus veered into a snowbank to avoid hitting the bus.

A second bus took the students to school.
