One Dead, One Injured In Car-Bus Collsion

One woman is dead and another is injured after a car and a school activity bus collided on U-S 301 between Four Oaks and Benson.

The injured woman was airlifted to U-N-C Hospitals in Chapel Hill.

The state Highway Patrol says the two women inside the car were headed toward Four Oaks. The bus was going in the opposite direction when, for some reason, the car spun out of control and the rear of the car slammed into the front of the bus and crushed the car.

No students were in the bus at the time. The accident occurred around 8:20.

State troopers have closed U-S 301 south of Four Oaks.
