38 School Kids Injured in Multi-North Carolina Bus Accident

December 22, 2010, by Michael A. DeMayo

A North Carolina bus accident involving three school buses on Monday inured 38 students. School bus driver Boyce Goldston has been charged with failure to decrease speed as necessary to avoid colliding with another vehicle.

Goldston, an Asheboro City school bus driver, is accused of rear-ending another school bus, which caused the multi-vehicle North Carolina bus crash involving the third bus. 35 of the middle school students were treated at local hospitals for non-life threatening injuries, including back and neck pain. The school buses were going to Raleigh for a field trip when the collision happened. Per Justice News Flash, according to Lt. Tracey Barker of the Cary Police Department, Goldston became distracted by the sound of a buzzer and looked down for a moment, which was when the vehicles in front of him stopped moving.

In other recent North Carolina car accident news, North Carolina State Highway Patrol trooper Brett Daniels was sent to the hospital with hip and leg injuries after he was involved in a Winston-Salem traffic accident on Friday. Daniels was reportedly standing at the scene of another North Carolina motor vehicle crash on I-40 when a Ford Explorer driven by a woman hit a patch of ice and drove into the trooper’s patrol car. The trooper vehicle then struck Daniels. Charges are pending against the SUV’s driver over the Forsyth County car accident.
