Child seriously injured in head-on crash

From staff reports

The Burton Fire District and Beaufort County EMS responded to a motor vehicle collision on Roseida Road late in the afternoon on Wednesday, Nov. 16, which resulted in a child suffering serious injuries.

Just after 4:30 p.m., Burton firefighters and Beaufort County EMS responded to the 7000 block of Roseida Road for a report of a “head-on” motor vehicle collision. Emergency crews arrived on scene to a two-vehicle collision between a passenger vehicle and a van, with both vehicles sustaining heavy damages.

There were two children in the passenger vehicle, however only one child was transported with what appeared to be serious to potentially critical injuries. According to the Burton Fire District, it is not believed either of the children were properly restrained.

Injuries to other occupants are unknown, and no one other than the child was transported. Roseida Road was closed, and emergency crews remained on scene for more than an hour assisting the occupants and removing roadway hazards.
