A school superintendent's car accident sparks concern in the community, and it's not the actual accident that's causing concern.

People are questioning if Dr. Camille wright, Superintendent of Enterprise City Schools, followed procedure after the accident, which happened earlier this month, when she says she swerved to avoid hitting an animal on Grubbs Street. 

She hit a two-foot retaining wall, damaging the front end of a school system SUV, and she's accused of not properly reporting the incident right away.  

"I think taking off without reporting it and just bringing your car to the shop as it was stated in the newspaper I think that's not a good role model to our kids working for the school system you should be a better role model and be responsible," said Enterprise resident Nicole Annicelli.

"I think they're making a mountain out of a mole hill.  That's my feelings on it.  They had a lot about it in the paper, but I didn't see anything like it's a major crime or something, you know," said Jim Whigham, who has seen lots of changes after living in Enterprise for 67 years.

Others say the accusations have no affect on the education provided by the school system.

Dr. Camille Wright released a statement countering the accusations, stating she did in fact immediately report the accident and followed procedure by taking and passing a drug test.
