Posted on Jun 17, 2015

Yesterday, June 16, 2015, a Coastal RTA bus was traveling south on HWY 501 near Robert Grissom Parkway. A Lexus car traveling north on HWY 501 failed to yield the right of way to the bus as it attempted to turn onto the parkway, and the bus crashed into the passenger side of the vehicle.

Twenty-one people were transported to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for treatment and witnesses say a baby was in the back of the Lexus.

Several local fire departments and the Myrtle Beach Police Department responded to the scene and conducted their investigation.
