Wire Came Down on School Bus in Wolcott

A wire came down on a school bus in Wolcott Friday morning and police said the students are safe and are now in school.

Wolcott police said in a Facebook post that several trees and wires came down during the storm and a wire came down on a school bus with students inside of it on Colby Lane.

The students have been removed and they are safe and in school, according to police.

Several streets had been blocked during the very early morning hours, including Wolcott Road, from the Waterbury line to Nichols Road, police said.

They added that almost all roads have been cleared except for Tosun Road, Colby Road, and Garthwait and crews are in these areas.

Power is still out on Wolfs Hill Road, but Eversource is working to restore the power, according to police. 

Police also warned that roads are covered with wet leaves, so conditions are slick.
