For some students of Lincoln County in West Virginia, the first day of school did not go as smoothly as they might have hoped.
Superintendent David L. Roach reported that a school bus carrying children home after their first day of school was involved in an accident on Limestone Road in Hamlin, WV. Luckily, although children were on the bus at the time of the accident, none of them were injured.
Roach reported that the driver of the bus at the time of the accident was actually a substitute bus driver. He further reported that the driver is being tested for drugs—which the superintendent states is required anytime a school bus accident occurs.
The accident occurred between the school bus driver and Lewis Smith, who was driving a 1998 Mercury Sable. According to Smith, there was some “miscommunication” between himself and the bus driver, resulting in the collision.
