Teacher, student injured after barn collapses at Princeton High School

JOHNSTON COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- A student and teacher were injured when a small barn collapsed at Princeton High School Wednesday afternoon.

It happened just after 1:30 p.m.

The student and teacher were trapped under the small agricultural building but have since been freed.

Both have been taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

According to Johnston County school officials, the two were inside the barn removing items so the structure could be torn down in the near future.

A county fire marshal was on campus doing a routine inspection and heard the collapse while several students heard it too and ran outside.

An investigation is underway to determine what caused the collapse.
