Terrifying video shows school bus sliding down icy road

Icy conditions in Massachusetts led to this scary footage. Caught on camera by Cheryl Katz, it shows a school bus filled with children sliding out-of-control down a residential street.

Katz can be heard exclaiming "Oh my God!" as she watches the bus floundering down Peach Tree Drive in Sutton, MA. As the bus slides down the street, it turns sideways, running over a mailbox before coming into contact with a car.

The collision with the car thankfully halted the runaway bus from making further progress down the steep road.

The car's driver was also having trouble in the conditions, reports WCVB, and had only stepped out of his vehicle when he saw the bus on a crash course for him.

Police confirmed that neither the driver nor any of the 29 children on board the bus were hurt. Both vehicles were able to drive away under their own power.

"We are very fortunate that no students or staff were injured during this very scary accident," Superintendent Theodore Friend wrote in an email. "Unfortunately there were a few back roads that had not been treated before the buses got on the road which caused this accident."
