County school buses collide

November 7, 2011

Two Catawba County school buses side-swiped each other after 3 p.m. Monday on West Bandys Cross Road between the towns of Maiden and Catawba.
Side-view mirrors of the buses collided as they passed.

One student from each bus suffered minor injuries from broken glass that shattered when the buses collided. They were treated on the scene by emergency personnel.

The buses carried a mix of students from Bandys High School and Mill Creek Middle School.

After the collision, students were transported to different buses for transportation home. N.C. Highway Patrol Trooper B.E. Hipp said the students had to switch buses because the broken side-view mirrors posed a safety issue.
