School bus forced off road, no injuries reported

Live Oak — A Suwannee County School bus narrowly missed being hit by a truck that was coming out of the Love's Truck Plaza at I-75 in Hamilton County as it was transporting four special needs kids to Greenwood School in Jasper, this morning. The bus driver took evasive action to avoid a collision and went into the ditch, according to Jesse Lovelace, director of transportation for Suwannee County schools. No injuries were reported and a back up bus was sent to pick up the kids. 

Lovelace said the bus driver did a great job keeping the bus from rolling over and keeping the kids calm.
