Emergency crews were on the scene of a school bus crash just south of Rock Hill early Wednesday morning.  Authorities said the wreck happened around 7:30 a.m. at McConnells Highway and Pinecrest Drive.

School district officials said the bus, which was carrying 13 students from Finley Road Elementary School, ran off the road after the bus driver swerved to avoid another oncoming vehicle.

Troopers are trying to find that car but they do not have a good description.  Rock Hill school officials told Channel 9 that six students suffered minor injuries when the bus bottomed-out hard on a driveway before coming to a stop in someone’s front yard.

They were taken to the hospital to be checked out.  The bus driver was OK.  Another bus was sent to the scene to take the remaining seven students to school.  Pinecrest Drive was blocked while authorities investigated.
