School System Truck Flips In Greenville Accident

Two people were hurt in a morning accident where a school system vehicle flipped over several times.

It happened on County Home Road in Greenville, near the recycling center at around 8:50 a.m.

The crash involved a Pitt County Schools facilities truck and a van.

A witness told WITN News that the van crossed the center line and struck the school truck, causing it to flip over several times before landing on its top. The van ended up in a ditch.

A passerby pulled the school system employee out of the truck, who was said to be alert and talking. There is no immediate word on the extent of injuries.

Traffic on County Home Road was backed up as wrecker crews pulled the two vehicles from the scene.
