Sullivan County School Buses Collide; 18 Children Taken to Hospitals
Eighteen elementary students went to hospitals to be checked, but no life threatening injuries after one school bus ran into the back of another in Kingsport. Both buses were taking kids home from Ketron Elementary School. Sheriff's spokesperson Leslie Earhart said the driver of one the buses became distracted by a student’s behavior. “Students on one of the buses pulled the emergency latch on the window which caused an alarm to go off," she said. "At that time the bus driver turned around to see what was going on and hit the bus that was stopped in front of him.” She said 70 kids were aboard the two buses. Students who suffered injury were taken to both Indian Path and Holston Valley Hospitals but are expected to be ok. She said neither bus driver is expected to be cited. (LM)
