School Bus Wreck

A Laurens County District 55 school bus was reportedly involved in a three-vehicle wreck this afternoon. District 55’s Ed Murray said he understands the wreck occurred on US 221 south of Laurens. Another source informed WLBG that the wreck occurred on US 221 in the vicinity of New Prospect Baptist Church.

Mr. Murray said he was still awaiting some details, but initial reports indicated the bus had already dropped off all students, and that the driver was not injured. There was some indication that the drivers of the other two cars and one auto passenger may have been transported for treatment.
