Skyline High School bus tips over after sliding on icy road
A Skyline High School bus slid on an icy road this morning and tipped over on its side with eight students on board, the Ann Arbor school’s principal said in an email message to parents. No one was injured.
Bus No. 119 was traveling south on an unpaved portion of Maple Road south of Stein Road on the north side of Ann Arbor when it lost traction and slid, landing on its side, school officials said.
Supervisors responded and stayed with students until another bus arrived to take the students to school, Skyline High School Principal Sulura Jackson wrote in an email to parents this morning. That bus arrived at the school about 9 a.m., and the students were met by administrators and the school nurse, as well as other support personnel, Jackson wrote.
Although students did not appear injured, they were told to report any concerns to a counselor or administrator right away.
Ann Arbor Public Schools spokeswoman Liz Margolis said a few other buses had difficulty navigating outlying roads and some buses could not get to students' houses because of icy roads.
Bus 119 makes the following stops:
- Whitmore Lake at DhuVarren
- Warren at Gleaner Hall
- St. Patricks Church at Northfield Church
- N Maple at Starak Lane
- N Maple at Riverbend
