KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) - Multiple students with minor injuries were taken to two local Sullivan County hospitals Monday afternoon.

According to Wellmont Health System spokesperson Jim Wozniak, three students were taken to Holston Valley Medical Center around 4 p.m. 

A fourth student was taken to Indian Path Medical Center, according to a Mountain States Health Alliance spokesperson.

All students have since been released. 

Students from Ketron Elementary School were on a Sullivan County bus that hit a hump as the bus driver was reportedly turning from Cardinal Street onto Newland Avenue. When it hit the hump, a wheel of the bus went off the road, which jolted the kids and injured four of them.

The location of Monday's bus incident was just a few miles from Thursday's bus crash on Bloomingdale Road.

The students reportedly told the bus driver they were injured, and they were returned to the school.

Jubal Yennie, director of Sullivan County Schools, said the injuries were not serious.


"It's always unnerving," said Sullivan County Assistant Superintendent, Gene Johnson, "the most important thing we do is take care of our kids. Anytime you have an accident has potential for injury it's unnerving." 

One parent told News Channel 11 enough is enough.

"Since the bus wreck last week, I have been bringing my son to school instead of letting him ride the bus because I don't want anything happening to my kid, said Christy Reed.
According to a Sullivan County Sheriff's Office news release, there were 13 students on the bus when it hit the hump.
