Tree falls on special-needs bus, no one injured


PENNINGTON, Pa. — A massive tree recently fell on a school bus, bringing live wires down with it.

Two adults — the bus driver and aide — and a special-needs student on board survived the incident, the Pennington Post reports.

The rotten, hollow tree severed power lines as it fell on the moving bus. The neighborhood had a power outage, but no injuries resulted.

An EMT who responded to the incident told the Post that the bus was trapped between fallen wood and zapped with 13,000 volts, creating a lot of sparks.
