Minor injuries in Rowan-Salisbury bus accident

Nearly a dozen students from Corriher-Lipe’s Mix It up Council sustained minor injuries today when their bus backed into a brick wall during a field trip in Charlotte.
The students were visiting a holocaust exhibit at Shalom Park, the Jewish Community Center in Charlotte.
Of the 22 students on board, 11 were transported to the hospital. In addition, one staff member and the bus driver were on board. Two additional staff members and a parent chaperone were in another vehicle.
“Everyone appears to be OK,” said Anthony Vann, Rowan-Salisbury assistant superintendent of operations.
“More than anything, it was just a safety precaution,” he said of the students going to the hospital.
According to Public Information Officer Rita Foil, all of the students will be treated and released today.
All the parents of the students have been contacted. Corriher-Lipe Principal Dr. Beverly Pugh went to the hospital to be with the students.
The students whose parents were unable to pick them up from the hospital will be transported back to school on a smaller bus later today.
The bus sustained minor damage and was still safe to travel, according to Foil.
“The buses are tough,” Vann said.
The remaining students have already been transported back to Corriher-Lipe.
