Next to the gym in the Midland concourse, students getting a head start in the medical field showed off their work at the Health Science and Wellness Academy Health Fair, but getting there was no easy task.
“I was delayed about an hour and a half,” Cabell Midland senior Brayden Simmons said. “I just sat there. Honestly there’s not anything you can do.”
One person from the accident in Putnam County suffered minor injuries, a deputy at the scene said.
Nobody had to go to the hospital from the camper accident.
