Chief Deputy Lietz says conditions were foggy at the time. He says no tickets have been issued as of Thursday morning as authorities continue to investigate what happened.

Two students were transported to the hospital and released to their parents later Wednesday night with minor injuries. The District coordinated with Kobussen Buses and another bus was dispatched to the scene to transport the students home.
