PFI;2:;~;*; Ft :gE~" ; ' 2 ila ~l':k Seven youngsters from Parkers- burg were injured when the school bus they were passengers in flipped on its side on Rt. 47. one-quarter of a mile north of Newberne Rd. Sheriff Clark James said the Briscoe Run Baptist Church bus with 25 passengers was beaded east on Rt. 47 to church camp at the Gilmer County Recreation Center when the mishap occurred, about 10:30 a.m. Monday, August 4. Stearl Rosier, 32, the bus driver and leader of the group, told James the brakes failed at the top of Bush Hill. He said he hoped to ride it out but on a horseshoe curve the bus flipped on its side, with the top of bus resting against the hill. Rosier told James He immediately kicked out the front windshield and the youngsters filed out. Seven of the youths were taken to Stonewall Jackson at Weston. One youth was hospitalized with a back injury. The remaining six were treated for minor inturies and released. One youth sustained a broken arm. James said a second bus carrying nearly twice as many youths as the first bus stopped at the scene of the accident. He said the accident could have been much worse if the bus had gone over the edge of the road at another location. James credited Bush Hill area residents Mr. and Mrs. L.R. Collins and Mr. and Mrs. Glennard S. Adams for providing food and refreshments to the children before they proceeded to camp. In addition, he said Mrs. Adams accompanied the seven injured children to the hospital. The injured youths were transported to the hospital by the Gilmer County Ambulance Service.
