Two accidents on both ends of Bryan County kept Bryan County Emergency Services busy Thursday afternoon, and one required a woman to be flown to Memorial in Savannah after she was hit by an SUV.
Bryan County Emergency Services responded to a hit and run Thursday afternoon in North Bryan, according to BCES Director Freddy Howell. Howell said emergency crews responding to the report found a 31-year-old woman laying in a ditch about 20-25 feet from the road, and the woman’s mother said she saw a large gray SUV hit the woman at a high rate of speed.
The woman was flown by air ambulance to Memorial Medical Center in Savannah, Howell said.
At roughly the same time, two students and two passengers were taken to hospitals Thursday with what Howell called “non-life threatening injuries” after a pickup collided with a school bus at the intersection of Belfast Keller and Belfast River roads around 4 p.m.
The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the accident, Howell said. The school bus was from Richmond Hill Middle School, and there were reports the driver, RHMS football coach Randall Boone, refused treatment until all students were attended to.
