Two Opelika teachers were injured in an accident yesterday afternoon in Washington D.C.

According to reports from a local CBS outlet, a two-vehicle collision caused one of the cars to jump a curb and onto a sidewalk, injuring the two teachers and two other pedestrians in the process.

A Twitter post by the Washington D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department stated that there were no serious injuries to any of the pedestrians.

Opelika City Schools Public Relations Officer Becky Brown said in a press release that the two teachers have been evaluated and will need additional treatment, but expect to make a full recovery.

“They have some injuries to overcome, but we will know more (today). We are extremely thankful that they did not receive life-threatening injuries,” Brown said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with (the teachers) and the team of teachers that are in Washington D.C. with them.”
