DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --- Police say the damage to a house hit by a school bus could reach $75,000.
The West Des Moines bus carrying 11 children to Crestview Elementary school Monday morning left the road, went through several yards, hit a mailbox and a truck parked in a driveway, and came to rest when it crashed into the side of a home. No injuries were reported.
The garage door was torn off the home and a front wall had extensive damage. Police estimate damage at $15,000 to the bus and $5,000 to the parked pickup.
The back of the bus came to rest against the house and the front against a tree.
Officials say slushy roads from recent snowfall contributed to several accidents.
