Kids Injured in Tour Bus Crash

Last week, eight people were injured in a crash involving a tour bus and a Great Smoky Mountains Railroad train. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Swain County. Initial reports indicate that the train was traveling at a relatively low speed when a tour bus carrying ninth graders from Georgia Military Prep School crossed its path. At least six students and two staff members were injured in the wreck. The driver of the tour bus, 59-year-old Charlie Poole of Milledgeville, Georgia, was charged with failing to yield the right of way at a railroad crossing.

Vehicle Fire on I-40

Last week, there was a vehicle fire on I-40 in McDowell County. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened sometime around 9:45 on Old Fort Mountain, between mile markers 69 and 70. A Hazmat team was called to the scene, because the vehicle was transporting cleaning chemicals like chlorine and other corrosives at the time of the incident. At this time, there has been no word on what caused the fire, but first responders from a variety of agencies rushed to the scene, and traffic was reduced to one lane on the eastbound side of the roadway.

Semi Truck Crash on Smokey Park Highway

On Tuesday, there was a truck crash on the Smokey Park Highway in Buncombe County. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened near I-40. Very few details about this semi truck crash have been released, but we do know that all northbound lanes were closed as crews and first responders worked the scene. For currently unknown reasons, a tractor-trailer went over a guardrail. Thankfully, no injuries were reported on the scene. There has been no word on the cause of the truck crash, which is likely still under investigation with local law enforcement authorities.

Aggressive Dog Attacks Henderson County Woman

Over the weekend, a dog known to Henderson County Animal Services as aggressive attacked a woman in the River Oaks community. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the owners previously surrendered the dog after it mauled a smaller dog last year. The owners later re-adopted the dog, after they were given notice that it was going to be euthanized. They were required to follow strict safety guidelines, since the dog had a history of aggression.
