The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is investigating an accident involving a school bus.

A car slid into the front of a bus in the west end of St. John's shortly before 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The car was on Frecker Drive, taking a right hand turn on to Brownsdale Street, when it slid into the path of the bus which was approaching the stop sign at the intersection.

Officials say 23 high school students were on the bus, but none of them were injured. They were put on another bus and taken to school.

Police did not say if anyone in the other vehicle was injured.

Roads were reported to be slippery at the time of the incident.
