An Arlington Public Schools school bus was apparently in the wrong place at the wrong time Tuesday morning. The bus driver pulled over Tuesday morning to take a break and while the bus was pulled over, the driver heard some sounds coming from the roof of the bus.

Lines from a nearby utility poll had snagged on the roof; the utility pole broke, shutting down a road Tuesday morning, according to Arlington County Police.

As of lunchtime, Williamsburg Boulevard in Arlington County had reopened, according to a spokesman for the Arlington County Police.

The bus driver had likely dropped students off before taking a break, according to a spokesman for Arlington Public Schools.

As of 1 p.m., it didn't appear that were were any unusual power outages in the county, according to the Dominion Power outage map.
