Bhubaneswar: A group of students from SAI International School had a close shave on Monday as a school bus carrying them hit a road side electric pole in Baramunda area here and got stuck to the electric cables which snapped under the impact.
The unfortunate incident occurred near the Jagannath Temple in the area in the morning when the driver of the school bus (Registration No. OR O2 AV 7104) carrying around 50 students lost control over the wheels and smacked into a road side electric pole. The impact was so severe that the electric cables on the pole snapped and fell on the bus. Luckily, nobody was electrocuted in the vehicle as the power supply through the pole had been stopped due to some maintenance work at the time of the incident.
Baramunda Police reached the spot following the incident and seized the vehicle after rescuing the children on board the bus.
