Crews respond to multi-car wreck on Ogeechee Rd involving bus - WTOC-TV: Savannah, Beaufort, SC, News, Weather & Sports

Portion of Ogeechee Rd closed due to multi-vehicle wreck

Posted: Updated:

Ogeechee Road between Liberty Parkway and Stiles Avenue is closed after a multi-car wreck happened on Wednesday morning.

Around 9 a.m., a Fed Ex truck was traveling westbound on Ogeechee Rd and went to make a left hand turn. That's when Metro Police say a white van traveling behind the Fed Ex truck tried to move into the next lane of traffic and was hit by another truck. The collision sent a school bus trying to avoid the accident into some trees on the shoulder of the road.

Police working the crash tell WTOC that no one was hurt in the wreck and the school bus had no passengers on board.

Savannah Fire and Hazmat responded to assist with the clean-up. One of the trucks involved ended up spilling about three gallons of diesel fuel onto the road.

The stretch of Ogeechee Road will remain closed to all traffic until they can clear the crash and clean the fuel from the roadway.
