MCPS Spokesperson Gboyinde Onijala said two school buses with students aboard were headed to Goshen Elementary School from a field trip at Strathmore this afternoon when one of the drivers discovered an antifreeze leak.

According to Onijala, the students were sheltered in place on the second bus while a replacement bus was dispatched to pick them up. She said no students were injured and the students are now headed back to school.
