The train was stopped on Government Street at approximately 7:55 a.m. when a traffic cam captured the East Baton Rouge Parish school bus driving down an unpaved gravel road next to the train, according to WBRZ.

In the video, the bus can be seen inching along the side road and coming toward an intersection. Drivers stopped on Government Street waiting for the train to pass were forced to back up and make room for the bus as it completed a tight turn from the gravel road.

The bus was able to pass through the intersection and no one appears to have been harmed, WBRZ reported.
