Three out-of-town school buses involved in accident on Highway 64 in Nash County

Three school buses on the way to Raleigh for a field trip were involved in an accident on Highway 64 Tuesday morning.

The buses, which were from Gaston College Preparatory School in Northampton County, were all traveling on Highway 64 West, just east of Old Carriage Road when one of the bus drivers slowed down to avoid hitting a bumper that was in the travel lane.

Sgt. Quintin Stanton, of the NC Highway Patrol, said the second bus slowed down in time to miss the bumper but the third bus rearended the second bus, causing it to hit the first bus.

Stanton said there were no serious injuries but several students were taken to hospitals to be checked out.

Stanton said there were 110 kids on the buses plus three to four adults on each bus.

The students were all transported to the Nash County Agricultural Center, where members of Nash County Department of Social Services and the Extension Office as well as Emergency Services, were on hand to assist the youth with activities until another bus could come and transport them back home.

Emergency Services Director Brian Brantley said he was proud of how Nash County officials worked to help during the incident.

"Everybody has worked together great in this situation," he said.

Charges of following too close will be filed, Stanton said.
