DUPLIN CO., NC (WECT) - No students were hurt in a hit and run accident involving a school bus and a log truck outside Wallace Tuesday afternoon.

It happened on Cypress Creek Road around 4:45 p.m.

A schools spokeswoman says two high school students were on the bus when it was sideswiped by a log truck.  They and the bus driver were checked out by EMS but were not hurt.

The Highway Patrol is investigating.

Last month, a seven-year-old girl was killed when she was hit by a log truck while getting off a school bus in Sampson County.

The driver of that truck, Johnny Spell, was charged with DWI.
