ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. — Slick roads are what authorities are blaming after a Rowan County school bus slid off the road and down an embankment early Friday morning.
Officials said there were three students on the bus, but they were not hurt. Neither was the driver.
The accident happened just after 6 a.m. at Majolica Road and Sherrils Ford Road, according to WSOC.
The bus hit a gas line when it wrecked and the gas company was on scene working to cap it.
Rowan County Schools were operating on a normal bus schedule when the accident happened.
School transportation officials checked the roads earlier in the morning and determined the weather to be a rain event, according to a school district spokesperson.
