POTOMAC, Md. (WJLA) - A school bus in Montgomery County crashed and was teetering over a ravine with multiple passengers inside Tuesday morning, according to authorities.

Montgomery County Fire officials say the crash happened in the 110500 block of Tulip Lane off Glen Mill Road in Potomac after the small bus slipped on ice. A special needs student from Rockville High School, an aide and the driver were rescued safely from the bus after it was stabilized and are being evaluated by medical personnel, officials say.

Fire officials say there are no serious injuries and were working to keep all of the passengers warm. Trucks were called to the area to salt the road so that a tow truck could be brought in to pull the bus from the edge of the ravine.

Schools in Montgomery County were on a two-hour delay Tuesday after rain the day before caused icy conditions in the area.
