NEW INFO: School Bus Vs. Moped Injures Driver

State troopers are investigating a wreck between a school bus and a moped early this morning.

None of the four students on the Pitt County school bus were injured, but the Highway Patrol says the moped driver, William Briley, possibly suffered a broken leg.

It happened on Old Creek Road and U.S. 264 around 6:30 a.m. Troopers say the moped was west on Old Creek Road, while the bus was eastbound and made a left turn into the moped. Bus driver Chermaine Gray told troopers that the moped had no lights on at the time, nor was the driver wearing any reflective gear.

Trooper Amanda Signs says a reconstruction team will take a look at the moped bulbs and see if they were on at the time of the crash. So far no one has been charged.

Pitt County Schools spokeswoman Heather Mayo says the students on the bus were exceptional children, going to various schools.

Mayo says Gray has been a driver since 2000. As is protocol, Mayo says the bus driver will be drug tested and then can't drive until the investigation is complete.
