Car accident in Savannah

In an unfortunate incident on Friday morning, a man and his 8-month-old daughter were seriously injured in a collision involving a school bus in Bulloch County. The crash occurred at the intersection of Veteran’s Memorial Parkway and Cypress Lake Road. Both the father and daughter were airlifted to hospitals for emergency treatment.

The school bus, operated by a driver with eight years of experience, was not carrying any students at the time of the incident. Authorities confirmed that the bus driver was completing her route after having dropped off students at Langston Chapel Middle School and was en route home when the accident took place around 8 a.m.

According to Georgia State Patrol Trooper First-Class Tyler Rickman, the bus was attempting to make a left turn on Cypress Lake Road under a flashing light when it entered the path of an oncoming passenger car. The vehicle, a blue four-door sedan driven by a 25-year-old man from Statesboro, veered sharply to the right in an attempt to avoid the collision but was unsuccessful.

The impact resulted in the school bus spinning around and facing east, with only minor damage evident. However, the passenger car sustained substantial damage, including a shattered windshield. Despite the havoc, the experienced bus driver was unharmed in the accident.

The driver of the sedan, identified as Deven Campbell, was airlifted to Memorial Hospital in Savannah due to a head injury.
