DODGE COUNTY -- A Wittenberger Bus Company school bus that was transporting students home from Hartford Union High School left the road way and struck a tree on Valley Road in Dodge County  on February 17th.

Hartford Fire and Rescue tells CBS 58 there were ten students inside the bus at the time of the accident, six of which were transported to local hospitals.

Four of the students had parents on the scene that signed releases refusing medical treatment.

None of the injuires appeared to be life threatening.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Department is investigating the cause of the accident but weather conditions appeared to be a factor. They say, the road way was snow covered and slippery at the time of the accident, and the driver reported near white out conditions.
