At least nine students were hospitalized with minor injuries after the school bus they were riding in Roane County was involved in an accident, News Channel 11 reported on October 22.
Information coming from the Tennessee Highway Patrol revealed that a school bus occupied by 22 students flipped on its side on the 600 block of Mahoney Road. The accident reportedly occurred when the bus’s tires failed to navigate the curve and slipped off the road. There is apparently no guardrail in place to protect vehicles from sliding down the steep hill.
Nine students were transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries ranging from minor cuts to a possible separated shoulder. The driver, identified as 66-year-old Sam Davis, was not injured in the mishap. An investigation is being conducted by Highway Patrol in order to determine the cause of the crash.
