A school bus slid off the road in a residential neighborhood Monday morning, hitting a house.

WHO reports, the West Des Moines school bus was turning around a curve going downhill. The bus slid, traveling through several yards and hitting a parked truck before it struck the house.

There were 11 elementary students on board, and while police say the home and truck are severely damaged, nobody was hurt in the accident.

Students on board were transferred to a different bus and taken to school.
