Power lines fall on JCPS bus #0008

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An accident in the 4700 block of East Manslick Rd. caused power lines to fall onto a JCPS bus with children on board.

MetroSafe dispatchers say this happened about 7:15 a.m. on East Manslick Rd. between Shepherdsville Rd. and Preston Hwy. A car hit a utility pole, knocking down power lines. A ground line fell onto the lights on the top of JCPS school bus number 0008.

LMPD says 25 children from T.T. Knight Middle School were on board the bus at the time, and that no one was hurt.

JCPS says LG&E retrieved the ground wire, and that the bus had already cleared the scene and gotten the students to school.
