A serious motor vehicle accident involving two students occurred today, Friday, Sep. 22, 2023, over the lunch hour at Napanee District Secondary School (NDSS).

According to a release from Limestone District School Board (LDSB), a car and a motorcycle collided in front of the school on Belleville Road. Both students have been taken to hospital, and one student has sustained serious injuries, the LDSB said. 

Ontario Provincial Police are currently at the school and will be investigating. One officer was heard saying the investigation on Belleville Road should be over in time for buses to pick up students.

A message sent out to parents from Principal Paul McDonald gives the details above and notes, “Our school and the Limestone District School Board are working together to ensure students and staff are supported. Student Support counsellors from LDSB Educational Services are on-site and available to students and staff. We will update you with more information as it becomes available.”

Students commenting online who had purportedly witnessed the collision noted the serious-looking nature of the incident. It is unclear how many people were in the car involved in the collision.

Kingstonist has reached out the OPP for further information. This article will be updated as more information becomes available.
