A Whitehouse Independent School District bus driver hit a downed powerline this morning, causing a pole to fall and wires to be ripped from a nearby home.

Whitehouse Police Chief Craig Shelton said the incident happened on Willngham Road this morning when the bus hit a line that had been knocked down by a fallen tree.

"It caused quite a mess, but there were no children on the bus," he said.

Shelton said the road was blocked until utility  and road and bridge workers could remove the debris.
