ASH, NC (WWAY) -- Highway Patrol says four people were killed in a head-on crash Tuesday afternoon in northern Brunswick County. All four were in the car that hit a school bus.

The driver was 31-year-old Joshua Williams. Brandy Nichole Williams, who was 30, was also in the car along with their two children, 6-year-old Gavin Lee Williams and 9-year-old Joshua Kendall Williams.

The victims lived in the area on Green Swamp Road (Highway 211).

It happened on Camp Branch Road off NC 211. Highway Patrol says speeding was likely a factor and that the driver of the car was at fault. Investigators say the crash happened in a 55 mph zone in a curve.

Brunswick County emergency management says the driver of the bus, which was carrying students from Waccamaw School in Ash, was taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries. Highway Patrol says one student on the bus was also treated for injuries.
