A spokesman for PennDOT said the state agency responded as soon as possible when it received word during Tuesday's snow fall that several school buses, loaded with children, were stuck on the Lansford-Summit Hill hill (SR902).
At least four buses were stuck atop the hill for at least 1 1/2 hours, according to reports. On them were elementary and kindergarten students.
Shawn Brown, a spokesman for PennDOT, said that PennDOT was informed about 9 a.m. by private citizens about the stuck buses.
Brown said a PennDOT foreman was notified, who then notified his drivers.
