The bus driver was unable to determine whether the lines were electrical, cable or phone and instructed the students to remain on the bus while the authorities were contacted.

Hydro One sent a crew to remove the lines from the bus, which turned out to be telephone lines.

Once the lines were safely removed, the bus continued its route, arriving at Hyde Park Public School later than scheduled but with all passengers unharmed.
