School bus crash in Georgia

Archives, Trucking Accidents

Florida was not the only state to report a school bus crash this month; The State of Georgia was also the scene of one.  Investigators in Temple, Georgia are trying to determine what caused a school bus to run off the road into a ditch.  The bus overturned, killed a student and injured 13 others.  The injured children were taken to a local hospital for treatment.  The bus driver was a trainee being taught by an experienced driver on board with him.

Georgia State Patrol had the unfortunate situation of declaring a 17-year old student dead at the scene when he was pinned under the bus and could not escape.  A pastor on the same road witnessed the accident and offered his help.

The accident is under investigation.  My thoughts are with the family of this young student who died tragically.
