Iberville Parish school bus ends up in ditch

IBERVILLE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - A bus full of Iberville Parish School students had to switch buses Thursday afternoon after their bus ended up in a ditch on the side of the road.

It happened on Highway 1 between Plaquemine and White Castle.

According to officials on the scene, about 25 children from the Math Arts & Science Academy were heading to White Castle when deputies say the driver lost control of the bus. How the driver lost control is being investigated by the Iberville Sheriff's Office.

All children were either picked up by a parent or moved to a different bus to be taken to their homes.
