Bus slides off road, 21 children evacuated


SANDY, Ore. — A school bus slid off a road Friday, and 21 students were evacuated, The Oregonian reports.

Sgt. Adam Phillips, spokesman for the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, told the news source that a front wheel on the bus got caught in soft mud, pulling the bus to the side. The left wheels remained over the road, while the right ones hovered over a 4- to 5-foot embankment.

The students shifted to uphill seats to help steady the bus until Clackamas County Sheriff's Deputy Alan Alderman arrived. Alderman helped evacuate the students, a teacher and the driver through the rear emergency exit.
