School Bus Slides On Road; Students Checked For Injuries

Slick roads lead to a bus accident in Montgomery County on Thursday morning that slightly injured several student.

It happened on Oldham Road.

School officials say the bus was headed toward Camargo Elementary School when it fish-tailed in a sharp curve. The sliding of the bus caused the students to be thrown around inside the bus.

School officials say the driver immediately stopped the bus, checked on the kids and then radioed the incident in to his supervisor, as is the policy.

Several students were checked out by the school nurse, but there's no word of any serious injuries.

The bus was checked out and is said to be road-worthy.

    This is the only school system that I know of that never calls school off or will post a delay when needed. My thoughts and prayers to the children/families and driver.

    i also heard that the parents were not called. my cousin goes to camargo and this is not the first time that something has happened that the parents were not notified, guess principals and school officials think that if parents aren't notified, then the kids won't tell them. great teaching!!

    my neice was on that bus, and my sister had to hear about the wreck from another co-worker, I think the parents should have been notified, she was told someone seen the wreck and call the tv station, that it was just a minor accident, any wreck that involves a child is no minor accident, school should have been called off for 2 or 3 hours, till the roads were better, a childs life is more important than the school getting money for that day!! every parent should have been called, no matter how minor the wreck was, it was still a wreck!!

    The schools and jails get about the same $28 a day for students or inmates. Any questions?

    what about the newscast saying that school officials weren't calling this an accident since they didnt hit anything. Not to mention that the police were not notified.someone needs to take responsibility!

    school officials are paid on salaries not hourly. When I went to school, our school bus caught on fire, and we all made it out safe! However I do believe that schools should have and hour or two delays on days like this!

    My daughter was the student that "bumped" her nose..LOL...she has a red mark that is the length of her nose, not only did she hit her nose she fell in the floor and the girl that was sitting with her banged her head off of the window. All of the children that were hurt had to ask to go to the nurse! I was told that the nurse was waiting on them to return to school. I do think that they should have been on a one or two hour delay today, my child's life is more important than that school getting their money for that day!!!!

    Sounds like somebody was driving a little too fast if they were "fishtailing"....

    Yeh that is what is wrong with these dumb (edited) superidents that don't want to miss a dollar and send these kids to school on slick roads like we had this morning that is just insane. This morning should had been on a two hour delay or called off. You let my sister get hurt and they want hear the end of it.
