A school bus going to Tahoma High School to pick up the rest of the Tahoma High School Boys Swim team in Maple Valley decided to ignore closed road signs and drive around them on SE 240th St in Maple Valley. While going through the flowing water, the bus ran off the road into the extremely flooded ditch (which the bus driver did not see) and tipped over on its side! The 5 swimmers from Tahoma Junior High on their way to pick up the other team members and the bus driver were not injured at all, but quite a laugh out of the situation.The bus driver claims to "not have seen" the road closed sign, however she clearly drove around it to proceed on the road, where she eventually became stuck. Obviously, the lesson here is to not ignore closed road signs! The 5 swim team members were eventually transported to the high school via another bus, where they picked up the other team members and proceeded to Kent Meridian High School to win their first meet of the season!
