MINNEAPOLIS, MN (CNN / CBS) -- Eleven kids survived a harrowing 14 minutes on Wednesday when the bus they were riding on lost control.

The driver of the bus had a medical emergency, lost control of the vehicle and couldn’t pull over. A sheriff's deputy noticed the bus weaving in and out of traffic and got ahead to alert oncoming traffic.

At one point the bus, traveling about 40 miles an hour, went into a ditch, almost tipped over, and somehow drove back onto the road. A state trooper eventually used stop sticks to get the bus to stop in a ditch.

The trip lasted about 14 minutes and covered roughly five-and-a-half miles. 


None of the students were injured in the accident.
