21 bus wreck

One student suffered minor injuries in an accident involving a Wythe County Public School bus Tuesday afternoon on Grayson Turnpike about a half-mile outside the Wytheville town limits.

School Superintendent Scott Jefferies said the accident involved the bus and a second vehicle and occurred about 4:10 p.m.

“Law enforcement and school personnel responded, as well as medical personnel,” Jefferies said in a statement. “The bus driver had eight students on board at the time of the accident. One student has been transported to the hospital for a minor injury. The driver of the other vehicle suffered no injuries as well. Alternate transportation was provided to the other students to get them home this afternoon.”
