Description:



A Union County school bus with children on board was involved in a roll-over accident Monday morning, Union County officials said. Fourteen students had minor injuries and the bus driver had minor injuries too, school district spokeswoman Tahira Stalberte said. They were taken to a local hospital for treatment. The bus was taking students to Piedmont Middle and High School in Monroe. One student had a broken arm, while others had scrapes and bruises, County Manager Cindy Coto said. The county needed to call in resources from other counties to help at the scene, Coto said. The accident occurred around 7:45 a.m. in Indian Trail , according to the county, on Unionville-Indian Trail Road near Ridge Road. A separate accident involving a Union County school bus occurred at 7:31 a.m. on Austin Chaney Road near McIntyre Road in Wingate but no students were on board, according to county communications. That bus was for Forest Hills High in Marshville, Stalberte said.
