East Hancock students involved in bus accident; No one injured

HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - There were a few scary moments for dozens of Hancock County parents Friday afternoon. A bus full of East Hancock Elementary kindergartners and staff was involved in a minor accident while coming home from a field trip.

Hancock County Schools Superintendent Alan Dedeaux told WLOX News a vehicle ran into another car, causing that car to be pushed into the back of the school bus. Dedeaux said no one was hurt in the accident and the bus was not disabled.

We're told a call was made to the parents of those students alerting them of the accident, and that the bus would be returning after school hours. Dedeaux said many parents will be picking their children up from the school. The school is making arrangements to bring the remaining students home.
