LEXINGTON, N.C. — Two people were seriously injured in a crash involving a van, a tow truck and a school bus in Lexington on Thursday afternoon, according to The Dispatch.

No students were injured in the accident.

Crews responded to the intersection of Fairview Drive and Talbert Blvd. in Lexington around 4 p.m.

Lexington City Schools Superintendent Ricky Kriesky told The Dispatch the bus was stopped at the intersection when the tow truck and van collided in front of the bus.

The van apparently came to rest against the bumper of the bus.

Lexington City Schools bus No. 383 was carrying 13 students from senior high and middle schools.

Jeff Worley, fire commander at the Lexington Fire Department, told The Dispatch firefighters used the Jaws of Life to remove a passenger door in order to reach a male patient, who was removed through the back window of the van.

According to the paper, one patient was airlifted to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. The other person inside the van was also seriously injured.

There was no information provided about the driver of the tow truck.

No other information is available.

    I was at the scene when it happened and would like to know how the passengers of the van are doing. Yes, the accident bumped the bus, but the people in the tow truck and van were really the only vechicles involved. The two men were hurt bad and that’s what the story should be about.
