Middle school football players hurt in SC crash

Posted: Updated:

Several members of a Sumter middle school football team are being treated after their bus was involved in a crash.

Sumter School District spokeswoman Shelley Galloway says players from Alice Drive Middle School were on their way back to the school from a Saturday morning scrimmage when their bus ran off U.S. 521 North and struck a tree.

The coach was driving. He and 12 students were taken by ambulance to a hospital. Officials say at least three other students and one other coach were driven by parents and teachers to the hospital to be checked out.

Galloway says none of the injuries from the wreck appeared to be life-threatening. The Highway Patrol is investigating.
