A Newfoundland and Labrador English School District spokesman confirmed two students were on board when slippery conditions caused the bus to slide and hit a light pole. The accident happened on English Hill.
Administrators from Carbonear Academy arrived at the accident scene and suggested they may want to see a doctor as a precaution, according to the spokesman. Police were also contacted.
The bus will be removed from service for an inspection. As for students who had not been picked up, alternate arrangements were made to get them to school.
