RED SPRINGS, N.C. (WBTW) - The man who would've been charged in a crash between his pickup truck and two Robeson County school buses last week has died, officials say.

North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper RM Hunt says Samuel Ray Hunt, 20, of Lumberton, was charged with reckless driving and having fictitious plates.

On Monday, Hunt died at McLeod Hospital in Florence from injuries suffered in the crash.

Hunt also says the crash happened May 22 on State Road 1318 near Red Springs.

The buses were traveling west on the road and the truck was traveling east when the truck crossed the center line and hit the first bus. The second bus then hit the first bus. 

Robeson County Schools spokesperson Tasha Oxendine says the first bus was carrying students from Oxendine Elementary and the second bus was carrying students from Peterson Elementary, Red Springs Middle School, and Red Springs High School.

One bus driver and one student were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
