Comments Off

A school bus accident sent several students from the Canton School for Arts and Sciences to Madison County Medical Center on Wednesday.

At the time of the crash, there were 23 students on the bus which was in route to McNeal Elementary to pick up more students, said Canton School District spokeswoman Beverly Luckett.

According Luckett, the driver suffered a seizure which caused the bus to strike a tree on the side of the road.

The bus driver was listed in stable condition at MCMC. Several of the students suffered minor to moderate injuries.

Another bus, carrying 15 students, was also in an accident on Wednesday when it swiped a mail truck at Cameron Street, said Luckett.
