Harlem-Roscoe Firefighters, Winnebago Co. Sheriff Officers and Roscoe Middle School Officials responded to a report of a bus accident on Knights Armor Ln. on Feb. 11. It seems a bus full of Roscoe Middle School students had slid off the road on ice-covered Knights Armor Ln. on the way to school. Then it seems the bus company truck slid on the ice and collided with the bus as it tried to pull it back on the road. The students were not injured and were walked to another bus and continued on to school. A tow truck was called in to free the bus and pickup.

You can see the tracks above from DC John Bergeron's command vehicle as it slid down the hill as John tried desperately to manuever to a stop before hitting the bus and truck; Luckily he did!!!
