School Bus Accident Investigation

Updated: Friday, February 21 2014, 08:10 PM EST
A mountain school bus slams into a stop sign and sends a little girl to the hospital.

It happened in Transylvania County Thursday when a bus driver tried to take a hairpin turn in Brevard. The bus didn't make it and hit a sign, smashing a window and jostling the about fifteen kids onboard. It was his first day on the job.

The district didn't call authorities or EMS saying it wasn't a serious accident and the kids claimed to be okay.

But now one father says he spent hours in the emergency room Thursday night.

"I take that as a serious accident because my child and a school bus full of kids were in that bus- ya know glass coming in - and for her to hit the bus like she did and to have that egg on the side of her head," said David Pearce.

The district says the driver's been suspended pending an investigation.School Bus Accident Investigation
