School bus, tractor trailer crash on I-85 South in Spartanburg Co.


SPARTANBURG Co., S.C. (WSPA) — Troopers say two people suffered minor injuries when a tractor trailer hit a school bus on Interstate 85 in Spartanburg County.

The crash happened early Tuesday morning on I-85 South at mile marker 68. 

Lance Cpl. Joe Hovis with the S.C. Highway Patrol said no children were aboard the bus when it was rear ended by a tractor trailer. 

Two staff members on the bus suffered minor injuries, Hovis said.

7News crew said the bus appeared to have damage to the back left side, while the truck has severe damage to its cab and hood.

The tractor trailer driver was cited with driving too fast for conditions, Hovis said.

One lane of I-85 South was blocked following the crash. The lane reopened later Tuesday morning.
