8News spoke with the driver of the SUV who said she was traveling along Chester Road when she came over a hill and noticed the bus slowing down. She said she was unable to stop because of icy conditions on the roadway. 

A VDOT crew could be seen putting salt and sand on the road. 

There was an unknown number of children on the bus at the time of the crash; none of them were injured. Another county bus was called to pick the children up and transport them to school.
