NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) –

Live wires fell onto several school buses after being taken down during a construction accident in Antioch on Tuesday afternoon.

The accident occurred in the area of 3754 Murfreesboro Pike after the wires were struck by a construction crew.

Several students were taken to a hospital with minor injuries. The other students were transferred to a different bus.

As a precaution, Nashville Electric Service cut power from the lines in the area. Authorities said it was a communications line that fell on the buses, not electrical lines.
