Students Evacuated After DC-Area School Bus Hits Sinkhole

A school bus carrying students got stuck in a sinkhole on Wednesday, September 22, after a water main burst and weakened the road in Aspen Hill, Maryland – about 15 miles from Washington, DC.

This footage was posted to Twitter by Pete Piringer, the public information officer for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue service, who said there were no injuries and all “three or four students” on the bus were safely evacuated.
