SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah, June 8, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A Park City Transit bus took a wild ride Saturday morning, and safety officials required a few hours to get the rubber back to the roadway.

“Around 8 a.m. this morning, a Park City Transit bus veered off Homestead Road in between Rasmussen Road and I-80,” says a tweet from Summit County.

“The driver and (the) one passenger on board were able to exit the bus uninjured. The bus is dripping diesel fuel into East Canyon Creek, but it’s minor.”

The accident scene was southeast of Jeremy Ranch.

“Everything is boomed and treated,” the next tweet said. “Emergency responders/Health Department are on scene. Drivers needing to access Homestead Road, north of freeway, are being rerouted to #KimballJunction via Rasmussen Road. Homestead will remain closed until workers are able to pull it from the site.”

The next tweet was good news for drivers.

“Responders were able to safely pull the bus back onto the road. At this time the scene has been cleared and Homestead Road has been reopened.”
