A school bus carrying elementary school students hit a building on Thursday, October 12. The incident occurred at roughly 7:16 a.m. in Alamance County. Troopers responded to the scene after a bus heading to B. Everett Jordan Elementary School hit a building on N.C. 87 near Judge Sharpe Road. The bus went off the road, hit a culvert, and then hit a building.
The building the bus struck appeared to be a workshop, and people who lived nearby immediately came out to help comfort children after the incident. All injuries are minor, and six of the 18 students on the bus were taken to the hospital. An additional student was taken to a treatment facility by their parent.
The driver, 75-year-old Ronald Farrow, of Graham, was charged with failure to maintain lane control. He was not taken to the hospital.
