charlotte high school roof collapsed25 people were injured, 3 now in critical condition, after a roof fell on them at a North Iredell High School this weekend.

Students, faculty, and parents were among those hurt in yesterday’s tragic accident during an annual band competition.

After a tremendous amount of rain fell, an out-of-control truck struck a beam supporting the overhang roof at the main entrance of the school. Many of the injured were trapped by the concrete and had to be freed by local fire department rescue crews.

At least a dozen schools were initially scheduled to perform in the competition, but eight ended up canceling after the historic amount of rain began to fall. The only groups that showed up came from North Iredell, South Iredell, Statesville and Lake Norman high schools.

Several local churches are now rallying people to pray for those injured in the accident.
