Quite a scare for several students on a school bus Wednesday morning, after a pickup truck hit the back of the bus.

It happened in Chesapeake, Ohio, on Lawrence County Road 68, also known as Shaffertown Road.

The driver of the pickup told the state highway patrol his brakes failed and he was unable to stop his vehicle.

The kids on the bus were shaken and upset, but no one was sent to the hospital.

Subrina Damron, a student on the bus, said, "We were going down the hill and he had already picked up a little girl and she was about to get in her seat and there was a driver and he rear-ended the bus and it just went forward."

Witnesses say foggy conditions may have also contributed to the accident.

Some people complained to us that this windy road has caused problems for drivers in the past.

No word yet if the driver of the pickup was cited.

All the students were able to go on to school for a regular day of classes.
