(ABC 6 NEWS) - At least three school buses went into the ditch Tuesday morning due to icy conditions. Two of those buses were on the same road.

That happened around 8:00 on County Road 121 Northeast of Rochester. Two buses carrying Rochester Public School students went into the ditch. None of the kids were hurt.

A bus from Blooming Prairie also went into the ditch this morning. Our crew was on the scene shortly after it happened around 10:00 along Highway 218 near Lansing Corners. Students were on the bus, but none were injured.

The Austin Public School District says some buses did arrive late because they were dealing with slick conditions, but none of its buses went into the ditch.
