All Greenwood Bus Crash Victims Released from Hospitals

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Greenwood Commonwealth newspaper says that all of the students injured in a Monday bus crash have been released from the hospital. Most had received minor scrapes and bruises as the bus flipped onto its side on Highway 82 in Carroll County on the way home from a football camp in Starkville. First responders sent one player, junior defensive lineman Davin Anderson, to a Tupelo hospital for treatment via air ambulance. Luckily Anderson’s injuries turned out not to be as severe as first thought and he was released from the hospital Tuesday morning. In all the bus was carrying 40 players and coaches. The driver was head coach and athletic director Clinton Gatewood who lost control after drifting off into the right shoulder of the highway before over-correcting, crossing into the left lane, and then swerving back onto the highway causing the bus to flip on its side. A spokesman for the school told the newspaper that Gatewood, along with all of the other coaches in the district have taken all of the tests necessary to receive their commercial driver’s licenses with the proper endorsements to carry passengers as required under state law.
