Two buses were involved in a crash while transporting students from Ramsay High School on their way to a semifinal basketball game in Jacksonville. Police on the scene have reported that the collision occurred when the two vehicles, as well as another passenger vehicle, had crashed on McClellan Boulevard near Baltzell Gate Road in Anniston.
Birmingham City School officials have stated that none of the students had suffered any “visible serious injuries” in the accident, however, they did note that one of the drivers of the bus as well as six of the students involved were taken to Anniston Regional Medical Center. While none of the injuries are assumed to be major they were taken to be evaluated after complaints of suffering from pain after the event. The school system has also said that they did have representatives at the site of the incident.
School buses from the Calhoun County School System were able to then transport the remaining students who were not suffering from any injuries despite these events to Jacksonville, and that they were still able to compete in the semifinal game which they ended up winning 58-53. Those same Calhoun County School buses that picked them up at the scene where it all transpired were able to bring the students back to Birmingham once the game was over without any other incidents taking place.
According to the Birmingham City School officials, another passenger vehicle was also injured during the crash but as of now the severity and details of their injuries are not known at this time. A spokesperson for the school had explained that in addition to a further investigation of the incident that there would be nurses available at Ramsay High School to monitor the young students when they were available to come back to school.
