Kids escape injury after school bus struck by falling tree
This was the scene of an accident at Lisnennan outside Letterkenny this morning after a tree fell on top of a school mini bus.

This was the scene of an accident at Lisnennan outside Letterkenny this morning after a tree fell on top of a school mini bus.

The quick thinking actions of the bus driver meant that serious injury was avoided. He saw the tree falling and managed to slow up, meaning only the front end of the bus took the impact.

There were eleven primary school children on board, ranging in age from 4 - 11. None of the children were injured but some of them, along with the bus driver, were shook up.
