LINCOLN, Calif. (AP) — Six children and a driver were trapped aboard a school bus for more than an hour after the bus crashed into a power pole along a rural Northern California roadway.
No one was injured during the crash that happened shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday about nine miles northeast of Lincoln.
Footage from a KCRA television helicopter in Sacramento showed power lines and a power pole partially on top of the bus along the roadway.
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. spokeswoman Brandi Ehlers said the utility remotely cut power to the area, but students were kept on the bus until a crew could verify that the lines were dead.
That left about 1,000 customers without power, most in the Newcastle area.
Ehlers says power has been restored to most customers.
