School bus, SUV collide in Dorchester Co.

DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A school bus and another vehicle were involved in a head on collision on Thursday morning.

The accident happened on Highways 78 and 178 near Ridgeville.

That's in Dorchester County.

A highway patrol spokesman says a Chevy Blazer traveling westbound on Highway 78 crossed the center line, sideswiped a car and then hit the bus head on.

Dorchester County Sheriff's Sergeant Mike Miller told The Post and Courier that the driver of the county-owned SUV was airlifted to the Medical University of South Carolina and was in serious condition.

Miller said the county vehicle crossed the center line on US Highway 78 shortly after 9am and hit the bus.

There were 32 kindergarten students from Harleyville-Ridgeville Elementary and nine adults on the bus.

The children were all taken to Summerville Medical Center with bumps and bruises.

The students were headed to Charleston on a field trip.
