Over a dozen injured as bus carrying girls high school basketball team rolls over in West Virginia
The bus was transporting the Martinsburg High School team, which had just played in the Big Atlantic Classic tournament, when it crashed on the Eisenhower Drive I-64 entrance in Beckley, WV, local media reported. The cause of the crash was not immediately known, but the Berkeley County school system said that it was a single vehicle accident.
Twelve students and two adults were hurt in the incident and taken to the hospital. One patient was flown to a trauma center in Charleston, WV via helicopter.
The school principal, Trent Sherman, tweeted that everyone “escaped serious injuries.”
The team received no life-threatening injuries and is “doing well,” one player wrote.
The Martinsburg Lady Bulldogs played against Greenbrier East in the tournament earlier in the evening.
