PLEASANT HILL, Ore. (AP) - It was a rough morning for the 67-year-old driver on an Oregon school bus. State Police say the man pulled over and stopped the bus due to heavy traffic and a child jumping out of his seat.

However, once the driver was out of his seat he noticed the bus begin to roll because the parking brake wasn’t set. Lt. Gregg Hastings says the driver raced back to his seat and got the bus under control as it came to rest in a steep ditch Wednesday morning.

Hastings says no one was injured.

The Pleasant Hill School District students on board ranged in age from 5 to 15.

The children were transferred to another bus. No citations were issued.

Pleasant Hill is southeast of Eugene.
