A bus full of students on a field trip to Tupper Lake went off the road Friday morning.
Canton Central School District Superintendent William Gregory said the bus was heading to the Wild Center for a class field trip. The accident occurred in the Piercefield area, near the intersection of state Routes 3 and 56.
Gregory says a tire caught the side of the road causing the bus to go off the road and through a ravine. The bus came to rest perched up on a berm.
No injuries were reported as of Friday afternoon, although one child was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.
Gregory says the accident is being investigated. 35 first graders from two classes were riding on the bus with 10 adults. A scanner reported originally that the bus had overturned, which Gregory said was false.
“The bus did not roll over,” he said.
