Misfire causes school to break tradition

BULLITT COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A cannon misfired injuring two people at a high school football game.

Friday night the Bullitt East High School Spirit Cannon misfired, hitting a field worker and a person standing near the fence line, as the team took on Spencer County.

Both people who were injured were taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

On Monday, Superintendent Keith Davis said even though using fireworks with the cannon is a tradition student safety is the most important issue.

Davis has a committee reviewing the practice.
