Deer carcass believed to be to blame in deadly SUV-bus crash
WRIGHTSVILLE — Authorities say they believe an SUV driver swerved because of a deer carcass before crashing into a bus carrying the Eastern York High football team, killing herself and injuring three other people.
Hellam Township officials say the SUV collided head on early Saturday, Oct. 28, with a bus carrying the players home from a game in Martinsburg.
SUV driver Jasmine McCarter was killed. Two coaches and the bus driver were injured. The coaches were treated at a hospital and released. None of the 21 students was injured.
Police said Monday video from a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation traffic camera shows the SUV serving and they believe that was due to a deer carcass, although they don’t know whether McCarter was trying to avoid it or swerved after hitting it.
