Bus Accident Off Green River Road

Henderson County Public Schools News

9:57 a.m.

We are exceedingly sad to confirm that after a bus accident early this morning, Henderson County Public Schools lost one of our beloved bus drivers from East Henderson High. Tina Gordon, 53, has been part of the HCPS Family for 10 years, and our hearts are heavy as we mourn her loss.

The four students on the bus at the time of the accident have been transported for observation and evaluation to local hospitals.

At approximately 6:50 a.m., an East Henderson High / Flat Rock Middle bus transporting 4 students flipped over off of Green River Road in Zirconia. The NC Highway Patrol, EMS, and HCPS staff responded to the scene, and the investigation into the accident is ongoing.

While on scene, first responders determined that Ms. Gordon was deceased, and next of kin notifications have been made. The cause of Ms. Gordon’s death is still unknown at this time.

Our district’s Crisis Response Teams are employed at the schools affected by this tragic accident, and will be available to support students and staff in our school communities.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ms. Gordon’s family and our greater school communities.
