At least three people were injured in a multiple-vehicle crash that involved a Rock Hill school bus on West Main Street Thursday afternoon, according to school officials.

Spokesman for Rock Hill schools Mychal Frost said several students were injured in the crash involving multiple cars and a school bus Thursday.

One student on the school bus and the bus driver were transported to an area hospital after the wreck, Rock Hill police spokesman Mark Bollinger said.

Bollinger said another student, who was driving one of the cars involved, was also taken to the hospital.

The three people, including two Rock Hill school district students, were transported to an area hospital for what appeared to be minor injuries, Frost said.

The students involved attend Rock Hill and South Pointe high schools, he said. They were returning from a class at the Applied Technology Center when the accident happened, he said.

Bollinger said three cars and the school bus were involved. One car rear-ended another, causing the second car to swerve into the school bus, he said.

Bollinger said the second car then swerved away from the school bus and crashed into a third car.

All of the cars were driven by students, Frost said.

Rock Hill officers are still investigating the crash, Bollinger said. It’s not yet known if charges will be filed.
