Ketchikan, Alaska - Unplowed side roads made travel difficult
for two Laidlaw busses this morning at Bunchberry Lane and South
Point Higgins where they both slid off the road.
According to the photographer
Judy Roush, "The driver of the small bus, was busily trying
to put chains on his bus, after the fact. He managed to get one
on the right rear." Roush said there were no State Troopers
for quite a while, but Laidlaw's "man" was right there!
"Purdy Towing saved the day and the busses."
7:30 am at Bunchberry
Lane and S. Point Higgins

When Laidlaw was contacted regarding the road conditions and
if any other busses had experienced problems, manager Lorrie
Eastham's commented, "You must be having a slow news day."
She did add that no other busses experienced any problems and
that the road was plowed after the two busses were off the road.
Snowfall was heavy north of
Ketchikan with 4 inches accumulation measured at 14 miles North
Tongass Highway by noon Monday.
