LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — A Leon County Schools adult student died Monday afternoon during an off-campus transportation incident involving a motorized wheelchair, the school district announced Friday.

"Our thoughts continue to be with the family and friends of all involved," Petley added.

Both LCS and the Tallahassee Police Department are investigating the situation, LCS wrote in a release.
