A Randolph County school bus struck a utility pole across from North Elementary School at approximately 7 a.m. Monday, officials said.

The driver, Dave Teter, was transporting approximately 30 students to the school at the time of the accident, according to Terry George, assistant superintendent for Randolph County Schools.

After the accident, four students complained about stiff necks, George said. They were taken to Davis Memorial Hospital to be examined for further injuries. At the scene, no major injuries were reported.

The Elkins Police Department and Randolph County EMS responded to the scene. Officers are still working on an official report.

Some middle and high school students, as well as North Elementary students, were on the bus. George said that students' parents were contacted to allow them the option of taking their children to the appropriate schools. Approximately half of the students were picked up by their parents and the other half continued to school on a separate school bus, officials said.
