No injuries reported after near school bus accident

No injuries have been reported but precautions are being taken after a field trip for North Mianus School nearly led to a vehicle accident.

According to Kim Eves, director of communications for the Greenwich Public Schools, a school bus carrying fourth graders and chaperones was traveling back from a field trip when there was a near miss with another vehicle. Ms. Eves said the bus had to do a sudden stop to avoid a collision with another vehicle, causing all aboard the bus to be jostled.

The Greenwich Police Department responded to the scene and the initial assessment was that there were no serious or apparent injuries. However, it was determined by both police and Greenwich Emergency Medical Services that everyone should be checked out at the hospital. As a result all the students and chaperones were taken to Greenwich Hospital for examination.

Parents have been informed of this and both Deputy Superintendent of Schools Ellen Flanagan and North Mianus Principal Angela Schmidt went to the hospital to check on the students and supervise the situation.

No further details were released initially.
