Accident closes down southbound 501 in Conway
A two-vehicle accident caused the southbound lanes of Highway 501 in Conway, South Carolina to be shut down this past weekend. The accident occurred Friday afternoon near El Bethel.
A sports utility vehicle collided with a school bus causing the wreck. One person was cut out of the SUV and taken to Conway Medical Center for treatment. There were no injuries on the school bus. It is unclear whether any school children were on the bus at the time of the accident.
Southbound motorists were forced to find an alternate route until the wreck was cleared. Already that afternoon, a collision had occurred on the northbound lanes of 501 that had stalled traffic. There were no injuries reported from that accident.
