Northside High School students okay after bus accident

ROANOKE COUNTY, VA -

Some Northside High School students are all okay after a bus accident Saturday morning.

Roanoke County School spokesperson Chuck Lionberger says it happened near Sweetbriar College (which is about 12 miles north Lynchburg). He couldn't tell us the number of people on the bus at the time but says there were no injuries.

Lionberger says it was a "minor incident". A second bus came to pick up the students which Lionberger says is policy no matter how minor the damage maybe so they can investigate the damage.

Lionberger said he didn't know exactly when or where the accident occurred.

A WSLS viewer says two buses were heading to band camp when the accident occurred and her daughter was on the second bus that was not involved in the accident.
