The bus was traveling on Forrest Drive and began to make a right turn onto Woods Road when the rear of the bus slid into the ditch and onto its side.

The student was taken out the emergency exit at the rear of the bus since the side door was against the side of the ditch.

A tow truck has since pulled the bus out.
