LCM bus slides in rain, no injuries

A Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD school bus carrying high school students was involved in a one vehicle accident the afternoon of Monday, Nov. 28, LCM community relations coordinator Sherry Combs said in a statement, but no one on the bus was injured.

The bus was on Bilbo Road, a very narrow street, and the driver moved toward the shoulder as a truck approached from the opposite direction. In the wet conditions, the wheels began sliding in the mud and when the driver corrected to keep the bus on the road, it ended up straddling the road.

Most students were moved to a second bus for the trip home, and the others had parents pick them up at the accident site.

"[The bus] did not end up in the ditch, as rumored," Combs said in an email, "and all passengers and the bus driver are uninjured."
