A horse is dead after a school bus crash Friday morning.
The Breathitt County transportation director says the bus driver was on the way to pick students up on Route 476 when two horses ran out in front of the bus. One horse made it across, but the other wasn't as lucky.
"No students was involved. No students was on the bus. The bus driver was not hurt, so you know fortunately we didn't have no students and everything turned out good in this accident. You never want an accident to happen, but you know it turned out good other than the horse losing it's life," said Transportation Director Steve Banks.
Banks says this accident could not have been avoided.
