CANTON -- One student was released today after being taken to Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake following a school bus accident this morning.

Canton Schools Superintendent William Gregory said the student, who complained of blurred vision, was taken there by a teacher "as a precautionary measure for observation."

Gregory said this afternoon that student was "doing fine."

Meanwhile Gregory says all the other students, faculty and parents involved in this morning’s bus accident have returned safely to school.

Gregory reported what he called a minor accident at about 10 a.m. today involving a bus taking Mrs. Morrill’s and Ms. Bergen’s first grade classes to the Wild Center in Tupper Lake this morning.

No other students were reported hurt.  Children were returned to school after being checked by medical personnel on site.

Gregory said it is believed that a flat tire might have caused the bus to veer off the highway.
