South Carolina auto accidents can have a happy outcome

Sending one's children off to school is almost a think-less task. Packing up the backpacks, tying the shoes, zipping the coat and kissing them goodbye when dropping the kids off at the bus stop, daycare center or even at school is how many South Carolina parents spend their mornings. Trusting that all of the adults that will be in charge of or have contact with their children will provide the utmost care with the precious gems is sometimes never given a second thought. But auto accidents occur, and school buses are not exempt.
