A handful of Bibb County school students were temporarily trapped in their school bus that snagged power lines Wednesday morning.
Just before 6:30 a.m., the bus hit low-hanging lines in the 1100 block of Scotland Avenue, not far from Walker Street.
“The driver turned the corner and touched the power lines and called dispatch,” said Stephanie Hartley, spokeswoman for the Bibb County public school system.
Firefighters and Georgia Power were called immediately, Hartley said.

Macon-Bibb County firefighters on the scene said the three students and two adults stayed safely on the bus until a Georgia Power worker arrived to cut electricity to the lines that were resting on top of bus No. 414.
The lineman cut the lines, which were caught on the side mirror near the door and stretched across the top of the bus.
A second bus arrived, and the students boarded that bus and continued their journey to school after about a 30-minute delay.
