UTAH COUNTY, Utah, Aug. 27, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — A Nebo School District bus carrying dozens of students went off road Friday in Utah County.

The accident happened at about 7:47 a.m. on eastbound State Route 6, mile marker 151, a Utah Highway Patrol statement says.

“The bus was occupied by approximately 45 secondary school students and an adult male bus driver. The school bus drifted off the right shoulder of the roadway into the dirt for a short distance, then corrected back to the left and crossed all lanes of US-6.

“The bus then went off the opposite shoulder and hit a fence before stopping in a field near the roadway.”
