According to Johnston County schools spokeswoman Terri Sessoms, four students and a school bus driver received transport to a local hospital after a collision with an SUV on October 8.
The extent of the injuries they suffered was not immediately known.
According to Sessoms, Bus 94 had just left McGee’s Crossroads Elementary School when the collision took place at the intersection of N.C. 210 and N.C. 50 in Johnston County.
The crash remained under the investigation of the North Carolina Highway Patrol and further details, including potential charges, were not immediately made available.
According to Sessoms, the students remaining on the bus who were not injured returned to the school, where their parents were contacted to pick them up.
