Henderson County Treacherous Roads
There were numerous accidents in Henderson County Tuesday afternoon. So many that 911 dispatchers were only able to send emergency crews to incidents with injuries or those that were blocking the road.
Hills Towing was spending the day pulling vehicles out of ditches.
NCDOT crews were trying their best to keep up. But their efforts may have been a little too much a little too late. After an early dismissal, a school bus carrying six students from North Henderson High and Apple Valley Middle overturned. One student was taken to the hospital with a possible ankle injury and the scary moments have school officials not taking any more chances. Henderson county public schools will be closed tomorrow.
Henderson county officials are urging folks who don't have be out on the roads tonight or early tomorrow morning to stay home. But say if you are going to be out, take it slow and watch out for black ice.
