According to the Nashville Fire Department, about 10 students were on-board bus at the time. The students and driver all stayed on the bus as firefighters put wood blocks underneath the tires as a way to stabilize the school bus before letting anyone off.

No children were injured and they were all placed on another school bus before continuing on their route.

“It came to a pretty slow stop,” nearby resident Elaine Ross said. “It didn’t tip. We were worried about if there were kids on the bus.”

Neighbors told News 2 this kind of incident is common along Humber Drive.

“This hill has been very treacherous every time it snow through here. I have lost my mailbox 12 times,” Antioch resident Sam Thompson said.

Metro Schools dismissed students early after snow moved into Middle Tennessee, including the Nashville area.

Three other school buses were also involved in separate accidents.
