A School District 27 bus slipped off the road in the 150 Mile House area Thursday morning, Jan. 26.

The incident occurred on Pigeon Road, where parent Dana Hinsche said the road was so icy she could have skated on it.

She praised the bus driver, who handled the situation perfectly.

“The kids were in really good hands.”

The weather has been humid in recent days, with rain falling Thursday morning, however, that’s all about to change with a cold spell moving over B.C. by the weekend.
