School bus hits power lines in Jennings

(KMOV) -- A group of students had to change buses on their way to school Monday morning after the bus they were riding on hit some power lines.

It happened around 8:30 a.m. at Janet and Harney in Jennings.

Authorities say that the bus antenna hit some low-hanging power lines and they landed on the roof of the bus.

The lines weren't live, but the emergency responders had the seven students on the bus, jump from the steps rather then step off as a precaution.

A second bus came to the scene to take the students to school.

Shortly before 9:30 a.m. and Ameren Missouri crew showed up and removed the wires from the bus and the bus driver drove it away.
