Thankfully, all students and the bus driver were safely evacuated. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) assessed the students, and their families were promptly notified. Madison Consolidated Schools expressed gratitude towards the experienced bus driver, Jessie Ritzline, for her heroic efforts, as well as the swift actions of the students on board. Mechanics will now evaluate the bus, and fortunately, no injuries were reported.
