ST. CHARLES COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

A St. Charles County Councilman says calls on Friday and Saturday to MODOT to help school buses stuck on icy roads were never returned.

Councilman Joe Brazil says at least six school buses were stuck on Friday in the southwestern part of the county, some until as late as 11:00pm.

"For MODOT not to respond to us is unbelievable," Brazil tells News 4.

Eventually county salt trucks were called out to clear state highways to get the school buses moving.  One county salt truck rolled into a school bus along Highway F.  No one was hurt.

MODOT is responding by saying they received thousands of calls during the storm and they are working with St. Charles County to make sure the lines of communication run smoother.
