Six children and three adults required medical treatment for the personal injuries they sustained when a car collided head-on with a school bus in Holly Springs on June 4, reported a town spokesman.
Spokesman Mark Andrews said that the children’s injuries were not believed to be life-threatening. Four of the children received transport to WakeMed in Cary and two received transport to WakeMed in Apex.
Andrews said that 19-year-old Fuquay-Varina resident, the driver of the Buick LeSabre that hit the school bus, and his passenger, 20-year-old Willow Spring resident Donald Lee-Guiton, suffered serious injuries in the accident. Both received transport to WakeMed in Raleigh, where they were listed in fair condition as of June 5.
An adult driver in a third vehicle also sustained injuries, but they were not believed to be life-threatening. That driver received transport to WakeMed in Cary.
The bus was transporting students from Holly Ridge Middle School when Caso, southbound on North Main Street shortly before 3 p.m., crossed the center line, clipped a car traveling north, and hit the bus head-on, according to Andrews.
