A van reportedly ran a stop sign and struck a Madison County school bus Wednesday morning at Helican Springs Road and Sanford Road.
But no one was injured in the incident.
“The bus driver, Mr. James Adams, did an outstanding job handling the bus in the accident,” said Madison County School Superintendent Dr. Allen McCannon in a written statement sent to all school staff members. “Due to his outstanding response, no middle school or high school student was injured. The students were very mature in the aftermath of the accident. I was so pleased with how the students conducted themselves. Transportation director Brooks Dobbs and chief mechanic Kenneth Seiger also did a great job of handling the accident scene. Parents who arrived at the scene were calm and very helpful.”
McCannon thanked the first responders, emergency personnel and sheriff’s office members who responded to the accident.
“These men and women make a real difference in our county every day,” said McCannon. “When you first receive a call about a bus accident, your heart drops to your feet. We are so blessed that no one was hurt this morning. Moments like this give perspective to the other problems/opportunities that we will encounter today.”
