Three Bertie School Students Involved In Accident

The Bertie County School System says three students headed to a fundraiser Friday morning crashed a teachers car they were in and were all taken to the hospital.

The school system says the students were members of the Bertie STEM School, which stands for science, technology, engineering and math. They were on their way to West Bertie to deliver lunches as part of the fundraiser when the single vehicle accident happened on Mt. Olive Road.

All three students were taken to the hospital. School officials say they are not aware of their current condition at this time.

The school system is investigating and says it cannot release any further information at this time.
