School Bus Accident

The Highway Patrol is responding to an accident involving a school bus at Highway 264 and Grimesland Bridge Rd. in Pitt County.

Troopers say the incident was reported at 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

Details are limited, but troopers say there was property damage, but no injuries after the incident.

Pitt County Schools Public Information Officer Heather Mayo says the school bus was transporting 51 children to Pactolus School and attempted to make left turn from Highway 264. Mayo says the bus followed a car into the left turn lane. When the car began slowing faster than the bus driver expected, the bus moved back into the main lane to avoid a collision. In the process, however, a tire on the school bus side-swiped the side of the car.

Mayo says the police have not ticketed either driver.
