YADKIN COUNTY, NC -- A school bus carrying 20 students from Forbush Middle and Forbush High School overturned Tuesday morning.
Ten of those students and the driver went to local medical facilities for treatment. We're waiting to find out how many have been released. While The state Highway Patrol is investigating the accident, 2WTK is looking into the bus itself.
The bus was #146 and is 15 years old. This bus was inspected just before Thanksgiving: Tuesday, November 26th.
The radiator was cleaned, but other than that, no issues. Attached you will find the standard form used during the inspection on 11/26.
The state requires all public school buses to be inspected monthly. You can check out the comprehensive inspection on the NC Bus Safety site. When you click on the inspection video get ready to see the King of Nascar in the intro!
