WOODBURY: A single vehicle accident occurred on Wednesday afternoon, Mar. 30, 2022, at 12:30 PM which resulted in damage to the Woodbury Grammar School playground fencing. No students, staff members, or faculty members were involved or injured.
Cannon County Director of Schools, William Freddy Curtis, said, “I received a text early this afternoon from Woodbury Grammar School Principal, Emily Hancock, describing a vehicle accident on the campus. A white Ford F-150 pickup truck had lost control at the corner of South College Street and West Colonial Street in Woodbury. The vehicle ran through the fencing of the playground and over the basketball court, coming to rest at the edge of the walking track. Neither the driver nor the passengers were injured. At the time of the incident a fourth grade class was on the playground, and fortunately no students, staff members, and faculty members were involved or injured. Woodbury police were notified and Chief Lowell Womack and Officer Jimmie Hayes responded to the scene. Teachers and students then left the playground. We are extremely blessed that there were no students or staff personnel hurt during this incident, and are so appreciative of the quick action of our teachers on duty with their classes. A special thanks goes to the Woodbury Police Department’s quick response to the scene and to Middle Tennessee Electric Cooperative personnel to evaluate a nearby electric pole. Overall, this accident could have proved to have had a very different outcome, no person was hurt, and the fencing can be repaired.”
