Johnston County elementary school closed Friday after wreck

Posted May 11, 2012

— McGee's Crossroads Elementary School in Angier will be closed Friday for students after an overnight wreck on N.C. Highway 50 knocked out the school's main water supply, a Johnston County spokeswoman said. 

Authorities said no driver was inside the Toyota SUV that ran off the road when they arrived on scene late Thursday night. The vehicle hit a box that housed the controls for the school's water supply. Charges were pending once the driver is identified, authorities said.

Utility crews for Johnston County Schools were working to fix the water supply issue early Friday. McGee's Crossroads Middle School will operate on a normal schedule Friday, officials said.

    I'll go out on a limb here and speculate the driver was either drunk or illegal and ran to avoid the law.

    How come stuff like this never happened when I was in elementary school?

    Haha, what happened to the driver is my question.

    007knightrider -
    Read it again - it says the ELEMENTARY school will be closed today but the MIDDLE school will operate on a normal schedule.

    "How will the school open on a normal schedule Friday when it's closed the same day? Proofreading at its finest."

    Ummm.... the article says that McGee's Crossroads Middle School will operate on a normal schedule on Friday, while McGee's Crossroads Elementary School is the one that is closed because of the wreck. Looks like it might be you that needs to be a bit more careful - not the 'proodreaders'.

    First it says "closed for STUDENTS" staff still have to work. Then if you could read, it says the Elementary school is closed & the Middle school is on a normal schedule..Just saying don't insult before YOU read correctly.

    007 KNightrider....The elementary school will be closed. The MIDDLE school will be operating on a normal schedule.
