On Tuesday, some Eastview Elementary students experienced a frightening encounter on their bus ride home.

The Daviess County Sheriff’s Office says the school bus nearly slid down a 30-foot embankment in Maceo.

Deputies say this situation began after a student informed the driver she missed his house.

After stopping and backing up, a tire went off the road causing the bus to tilt.

Luckily, the wet ground prevented it from plunging all the way down the hill.

Witnesses helped get the 15 students off the bus and into a warm home nearby.

Deputies say there were no injuries and all of the students were picked up by another bus.
