Thursday 15th March, 2018 –The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology is reporting there were no major injuries to students who were involved in a school bus accident at Creek Side this morning.

The Antigua and Barbuda Transport Board 32-seater Bus used to transport students was heading to Jennings Secondary School, when a van allegedly stopped abruptly, causing the shuttle to slam into its back.

The female student who was seated in the front seat of the school bus suffered minor injuries to her foot and was transported to Mount St. John’s Medical Centre (MSJMC) for medical treatment.

Jennings Secondary School Principal Rosalind Beazer says a private citizen transported the remaining 13 students from the scene of the accident to the school. She added that the students are traumatized and their parents were summoned to take them home.

The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology continues to monitor the status of the students who were aboard the school bus.
