No injuries in school bus, 18 wheeler crash on I-385


GREENVILLE Co., S.C. (WSPA) — Troopers say no students were hurt when an 18-wheeler rear ended a school bus in Greenville County.

The wreck happened around 8:15 a.m. Tuesday on northbound Interstate 385 at mile marker 23.

Lance Cpl. Joe Hovis with the S.C. Highway Patrol said there were no injuries in the crash caused when the driver of an 18 wheeler rear ended the bus. 

Beth Brotherton, a spokesperson with Greenville County Schools, said 15 students from Bryson Middle School and Hillcrest High School were on the bus. She also confirmed no students were hurt. 

Authorities say the bus was rear ended by a tractor trailer near the Highway 418 exit.

Brotherton said the bus driver was pulling into an emergency lane because a buzzer was sounding inside the bus.

Damage to both vehicles was minor.

Another bus and guardians took students to school following the wreck. 

Highway Patrol says the driver of the 18-wheeler was cited for driving too fast for conditions.
