The truck that crashed into the Centre Elementary School on October 28th was not insured according to the information obtained by WEIS Radio News.
The Cherokee County School Board is now working with their Insurance Carrier, Risk Management, to get the building repaired. School Superintendent, Mitchell Guice, tells WEIS Radio the amount of damages to the building exceeds $125,000. He said the repair plans and drawings have been submitted to the State Building Commission for approval. Guice said repairs will begin once the Commission gives their approval.
The driver of the Witt Septic Service truck was 61 year old Phillip Lee Witt of Leesburg. He was charged with DUI and was taken to the County Detention Center. Witt made bond the next day and was released.
