Utility lines cause school bus delay

Bob Hainey, a spokesman for Pepco, said the utility lines removed were not electrical wires, but rather cable television lines. He said Pepco assisted with the removal of the lines.

Power lines cause school bus delay
4:15 p.m.

About 40 Hyattsville Middle School students will be delayed getting home after their bus ran into some low hanging power lines, Crime Scene reports.

The incident happened about 3 p.m. on Guilford Road in College Park, said Mark Brady, a spokesman for the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department. Neither the bus driver nor any of the students on board were injured, he said.

The power lines were stretched across the road from a pole to a house, and — perhaps because of wind — were hanging low enough that the bus driver drove into them.

Pepco crews removed the power lines from the bus, Brady said, but the bus remains on scene while officials talk to the driver.
