School Bus Involved in Accident in Pitt County, NC; Six Students Injured

May 27, 2019

PITT COUNTY, NC. – According to news reports posted online at and, a school bus was involved in a vehicle accident in Pitt County, North Carolina. Numerous students were on the bus at the time of the collision, and the news reports indicate that six students were injured and taken to a hospital.*

The collision took place at about 8 a.m. near an intersection in the Farmville, North Carolina, area. North Carolina State Highway Patrol says that a school bus carrying students from Pitt County Schools collided with another vehicle near the crossing of Stantonsburg Road and Wesley Church Road. WITN states that the bus collided with a pickup truck when the truck failed to yield to another oncoming vehicle.

A total of 30 students from Farmville Central High School and Farmville Middle School were on the bus at the time, according to WITN, and both news reports state that six of those students were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries. The extent of their injuries was not reported, but WITN reported that the students were “in good condition.”

It is not clear from the reports if the driver of the other vehicle or anyone else was injured in the collision. North Carolina Troopers are still in the process of investigating. 

Pitt County Schools released a statement after the accident, which was published by WNCT, saying that the school bus driver was not at fault in the crash. The school system also thanked law enforcement, emergency responders, medical staff, and the school system’s own staff for the actions taken to care for the students.
