CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Sheriff's deputies and the Tennessee Highway Patrol responded after a school bus became stuck in a ditch Monday afternoon in Clarksville.

The bus came to a rest with its back end stuck off the road in the 100 block of Lynx Drive, near Sable Drive.

Officials said 31 children were on board at the time and nobody was injured.

Clarksville school officials said the bus driver was attempting a three-point turn when the back end became stuck.

Another bus was called to complete the bus route, and many parents arrived to take their children home.
