Seven Injured in Bus-SUV Collision Friday

web posted August 30, 2014

JOHNSTON A total of seven people were transported for injuries following a Burton Center bus sticking a Toyota RAV4 broadside at the intersection of McCreight Road and Old Plank Road Friday afternoon. Two of the seven injured were children, one in a car seat sitting at the point of impact in the Toyota. The two adults in the SUV, which was loaded down with boxes of peaches, were also injured.

Three of the adults on the bus were injured and also transported. It is unknown how many adults were on the bus at the time of the crash.

According to information provided at the scene, the Burton Center bus was traveling north on McCreight Road when the Toyota traveling west on Old Plank ran the stop sign at the intersection and was broadsided by the bus.

The bus pushed the SUV off the road, rolling it at least once, and it came to rest leaning on a power pole with only two wheels on the ground.

The extent of the injuries was not available on the scene, though blood was found in the bus, on the ground, and in other areas where the injured were treated prior to transport.

A tag on the SUV indicated the driver was from Georgia and was heading back after purchasing a large quantity of boxed peaches.

The collision had traffic blocked for the better part of an hour until the bus was able to be moved to clear one lane, Edgefield County School buses were advised to try to avoid the area if possible during their afternoon routes.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the collision and the driver of the Toyota was found to be at fault for running the stop sign.

No one was airlifted from the scene indicating none of the injuries were life-threatening.
