School bus involved in deadly collision outside Atlanta

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — A person died in a collision between a school bus and a vehicle northeast of Atlanta Wednesday morning, CBS affiliate WGCL-TV reports. The person who died was not in the school bus.

Authorities said 19 elementary school students were being examined at a hospital as a precaution.

Hall County Schools spokesman Gordon Higgins told The Times of Gainesville that there were no reports of any serious injuries to the students after the head-on crash. The bus driver was also sent to a hospital to be checked for injuries.

Higgins said the bus was carrying 19 Mount Vernon Elementary School students.

Hall County Fire Capt. Zachary Brackett says all of the students and the bus driver were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center “for evaluation as a precaution.”
