Bus crash injures 23

On March 9, 23 people were injured when a bus overturned in South Carolina. The accident occurred in Georgetown County at approximately 7:30 a.m., according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

Local media reports indicate that a Williamsburg County Transit bus was traveling on Browns Ferry Road when it was struck by a car heading in the opposite direction, causing it to flip onto its side and come to rest in a ditch near Browns Ferry Elementary School.

Authorities said that 38 people were on the bus when the crash happened. Of those, 22 were transported to Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital in Horry County and Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital in Georgetown County for treatment. Meanwhile, the driver of the car that hit the bus needed to be extricated from the vehicle and airlifted to the Medical University of South Carolina for emergency care. The South Carolina Highway Patrol was assisted at the scene by Midway Fire Rescue. The cause of the accident remains under investigation.

Motor vehicle crashes can be caused by a number of factors, including distracted driving, speeding, and being under the influence. Individuals who are injured by a negligent driver have the right to pursue compensation in civil court. An attorney could assess a victim's case, gather supporting evidence and file a personal injury lawsuit on the victim's behalf. If successful, the victim could be awarded a financial settlement for current and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, lost wages and property damage.
