MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Several students were sent to area hospitals as a precaution following a wreck involving a school bus in Morgan County Tuesday morning.
That’s according to Bill Hopkins, Superintendent of Morgan County Schools.
Hopkins said a Danville High School student driving a car pulled out in front of a school bus on Danville Road just after 7:00 a.m. He said the school nurse for Danville High and Middle Schools witnessed the accident, immediately responded to the bus, and reported seeing no obvious injuries to anyone on the bus.
Hopkins added the student driving the car was not seriously injured and was able to walk around. District employees ordered students to be taken to medical facilities as a precaution. He wasn’t certain of how many middle and high school students were on the bus.
A medical helicopter was dispatched, but Hopkins said it did not transport anyone for medical treatment.
Approximately eight students were taken by ambulance to Parkway Medical Center and Decatur General to be checked.
