N.C. Head Start School Bus Rolls After Collision with Tractor-Trailer

A tractor-trailer driver allegedly crashed into a Head Start school bus in Columbus County, North Carolina, causing the bus to roll over three times, WECT News reported.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was reportedly reaching down to pick up a cigarette just before colliding with the school bus that was stopped to pick-up a preschool-aged student.

Two adults and eight children were on the bus from Ransom Head Start Center, and all 10 were taken to the hospital. The extent of their injuries is currently unknown. However, at least two people involved in the incident were airlifted to a hospital.
