ALBION, N.Y. (WIVB) — Elementary students in Orleans County won’t miss any more school after classes on Tuesday were cancelled due to a crash into the building just a day prior.
A group of five third graders inside Ronald Sodoma Elementary School in Albion were injured on Monday when a driver who suffered a medical emergency crashed into a parked car, then continued on into the building.
The crash sent debris flying, prompting first responders to rush children to the hospital with minor injuries, including lacerations. The school’s Superintendent Mike Bonnewell said he believes there were angels in the room yesterday after learning the student’s injuries and damage to the building were both relatively minor.
A building inspector decided Tuesday the building is still structurally sound, and will only need repair on the classroom at which the vehicle slammed two feet into the exterior.
Classes will resume on Wednesday, but it’s not yet known if the five students who were injured will be in attendance.
