A scary morning for students from the Hoosic Valley school district on Friday. A school bus carrying 9 students went off the road on County Route 111 near Baum Rd in Johnsonville around 7:30. A spokesperson for the Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Office tells News 10 that at least one person was injured, and taken to the hospital out of an abundance of caution.
The school released a statement on its website:
Around 7:15 this morning, Friday January 20, a Hoosic Valley CSD bus carrying 9 students slid off the road and rolled on its side. Rensselaer County Emergency Services responded and were supported by local first responders. All students and the driver were evaluated by EMTs, and one student was transported to a local hospital for precautionary measures. The other students were released to their families or returned to school. Hoosic Valley CSD personnel are following up with all students and their families to ensure their physical and emotional well-being. Thank you to all the first responders who selflessly helped out and supported our students.
Roads around the Capital Region were slippery as a mix of rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow began falling over parts of the area Thursday night into Friday morning.
