STARR, S.C. — A mother who was dropping off her daughter at her bus stop was struck and killed by a passing car on Monday, FOX Carolina reports.
The South Carolina Highway Patrol told the news source that the crash happened at about 6:45 a.m. A high school student got on the bus, and the student’s mother, Kerry Mullins, walked into the road to speak with the bus driver, Coroner Greg Shore told FOX Carolina. Mullins was standing in the road next to the bus when a car traveling in the other lane hit her. A neighbor said he witnessed a white Hyundai drive by his driveway moments before the crash, and he tried to give aid to Mullins but was too late to help her, according to the news source.
Investigators told FOX Carolina that about 18 seconds passed between the last student boarding the bus, the bus’s lights going off, the stop arm coming in, and the crash happening. The motorist told officials that he saw that the bus’s lights were on and he slowed down, but when he saw them turn off, he tried to pass the bus, according to the news source. Shore told FOX Carolina that the area was covered in dense fog at the time of the crash. He added that investigators were reviewing bus camera footage to pinpoint what happened or if any traffic laws were broken.
Anderson School District Three confirmed to the news source that other students were aboard the bus at the time of the crash. Deputy Superintendent David Nixon told FOX Carolina that the school district and administration, as well as other agencies, are working together to support the families involved.
