The bus was stuck in the yard around 2 pm today on Beansfork Road.

A School Transportation official from Bell County says several buses couldn't make it up hills because of the wintry weather, adding they were forced to pull over in order for salt trucks to pass through. Officials say all children on the buses were able to eventually get home safely.

Officials say there was one report of a fender-bender involving a school bus and a car, but say it was after all the children were taken home and only the driver was involved. Officials say there were no injuries or damages in that accident.

According to National Weather Service storm spotter reports, some areas in Bell county got between 2" to 4" of snow. Reports form fire and rescue, along with highway officials, in the Middlesboro area claimed 4" had fallen in that area as of 4:00 pm.

Numerous accidents have been reported due to the winter weather in southern Kentucky. WKYT Meteorologists say snow should start to taper off early this evening.

Road crews say they helped at least 6 buses who had trouble navigating the slick roads.
