It was a scary minute Monday morning for two dozen students on board a Prairie Valley School division bus that slid off the road east of Regina.

The bus slid into the ditch as the driver was starting to make a turn, just before the school at Balgonie.

There were no injuries among the students or the driver.

The school division sent out a second bus to pick up the elementary and high school students.

Because of the icy conditions, a heavy duty tow truck had to be called in to pull the bus out of the ditch.
