Georgia School Bus Accident Injures 16 Children, None Seriously

By Grant Law Office on February 27, 2012

Sixteen children were taken to local hospitals to be checked out after a bus accident in northern Georgia recently, but all were released to their parents and are expected to make full physical recoveries from the crash, according to a recent news report from Access North GA.

The accident occurred on East Hall Road as the bus was transporting students from the local high school. The bus rolled off the side of the road and came to rest on its side against a tree. Investigators say that they do not believe another vehicle was involved. Rather, they suspect that the driver of the school bus had a medical episode which caused him to momentarily lose control of the school bus.

About 22 high school students were on the bus at the time. Sixteen were taken to local hospitals for examination of their accident injuries, mostly bumps and bruises. The others were released to attend classes at the local high school or to go home with their parents, according to school officials. The bus driver’s medical condition is unknown; although he was not seriously injured in the crash, the condition that caused him to lose control of the bus may still be present.
