Motorcycle Accident AttorneyA few weeks ago on a Wednesday morning, Rock Hill troopers were called to the scene on Highway 161, to investigate a deadly crash that took the life of a motorcyclist.

the 55-year-old motorist was riding his motorcycle when a school bus pulled abruptly into his path, causing the fatal crash.

The school bus was driven by a 71-year-old veteran with an immaculate driving history. The driver said he was in route from York District One pulling onto the highway from Pursley Dairy Road when the motorcyclist came out of nowhere.

The motorcyclist attempted to avoid the collision, and did in fact avoid colliding with the school bus, but to the detriment of himself. He and his motorcycle skidded down the road, causing life-threatening injuries that killed him only a few moments later.  The victim was wearing a helmet.

There were 15 children aboard the school bus, and luckily, none of them were injured by the incident, physically at least. Most of them were in the visual path of the accident, and witnesses the horrific event.

Other witnesses also saw the tragedy take place, but none wanted to comment on the event.

The school bus driver has been put on leave until the investigation is complete by not only the police, but the School Boards as well.
