PETE FISHER / Northumberland Today Two children, ages 9 and 11 years, were sent to hospital with minor injuries after a bus slid off Community Centre Road near Northumberland Heights in Alnwick / Haldimand Township Thursday. The bus, which was transporting 10 children ranging in age from five to 11 years old, apparently got caught in a rut and was pulled into the ditch shortly before 8 a.m. The bus was also carrying the driver's 11-month-old child. The children were carried off the bus to an alternate bus by a Northumberland OPP officer, an off-duty firefighter and a school bus official in waist-deep snow. Witnesses at the scene said if it hadn't been for a number of trees the bus would have rolled over.
