A coach in South Carolina and four students were injured when the bus they were in crashed with a semi-trailer truck, according to reports. 

Lake City High School head football coach Ronald “Ronnie” Baker was driving a minibus with four students heading back from football camp at South Carolina State University Thursday when the wreck happened, WMBF-TV reported.

The bus was traveling through Orangeburg County after the tractor-trailer collided with the minibus. The bus was headed north on U.S. 301 and the truck was driving west on Bonner Avenue when the semi-truck collided with the school bus. All passengers and the driver on board were injured, but the truck driver was not, WMBF-TV reported.

Baker and the four students were taken to area hospitals.

A prayer event was held this weekend for Baker and the students at the Lake City High School football field at Sunday. 

The district also told WMBF that one of the students involved was 17 years old and the other three were 16. Two were students at Lake City High School two others were students at J. Paul Truluck Creative Arts and Science Magnet School, according to the district.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
