CAPE CARTERET — A school bus carrying students to White Oak Elementary School was involved in a minor accident on Highway 24 near Croatan High School early Thursday, Carteret County Schools Communications Director Tabbie Nance said.

No students were injured and all got to school on time, which was a concern because end-of-grade testing is underway, Ms. Nance added.

“We’re glad none of our students were hurt and they got to school for the EOGs,” she said.

Ms. Nance said she had no details on the accident.

“All I know is that it was a single car,” she said. “I don’t know who hit who.”

The N.C. Highway Patrol is investigating.

This is a developing report.
