Truck strikes school awning

A box truck delivering furniture to a local elementary school hit and damaged an awning at the school Monday morning.

The furniture was being delivered to Carrsville Elementary School about 9:30 a.m. Monday, said Lynn Briggs, spokeswoman for Isle of Wight County Schools. The awning in the pick-up and drop-off area of the school was hit.

The Carrsville Volunteer Fire Department responded and removed the damaged structure, Briggs stated. An outside contractor inspected the building and found no structural damage to the school itself.

The school remains operational, and the building will be open and operating as usual when students and staff return on April 12 after spring break, Briggs said.
