Few Injuries in a Chain-Reaction School Bus Crash in West GA

Few Injuries in a Chain-Reaction School Bus Crash in West GA

A school bus accident near Social Circle and Covington caused 50 plus people being injured. Six school buses carrying students from Burke County Middle School in Waynesboro, GA to Six Flags, just west of Atlanta, crashes into each other this past Saturday morning. The accident happened just as the highway lanes merged near a construction zone on I-20.

According to Georgia State Patrol Spokesperson Gordy Wright, traffic slowed as vehicles merged to comply with the lane closure just west of the Georgia Highway 11 exit. One bus hit the rear of another bus, causing each following bus to do the same, all the way to a motorist hitting the rear of the sixth bus in the line.

Thankfully, with that many young students involved in an accident, the injuries sustained were mostly minor in nature.

“Just a few bruises, scrapes,” said Amy Nunnally, a spokesperson for the Burke County school system.

One of the bus drivers was the most seriously injured. She had to be cut from the bus and airlifted to a hospital for treatment. But, the AJC reports her to be in good condition as of Monday.

The chain-reaction crash is currently under investigation.
