NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The North Charleston Police Department is investigating following a fatal wreck involving a school bus.
According to spokesman Spencer Pryor, the driver of a pick-up truck rear-ended a school bus just before 11 p.m. on January 11 at Rivers Ave and Greenridge Rd.
Originally we were told by Charleston County School District spokesman Andy Pruitt that 14 students from Garrett Academy’s wrestling team, along with two staff members were on the bus. We were later told that one student was dropped off prior to the incident and only 13 students were on the bus at the time of the wreck.
Four of the students were transported to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries. They all have since been released from the hospital.
The driver of the truck died at the scene.
