A chain-reaction school bus crash involving six buses and a car left one driver trapped in the wreckage and required over 50 people to seek medical attention, according to a recent article in the Greenfield Reporter.
The students were on their way to a school trip in Six Flags outside Atlanta when their buses were involved in an accident. Traffic had slowed to navigate a construction site, and one of the buses rear-ended another bus, setting off a chain reaction that involved six school buses in total and one passenger car. The accident shut down traffic on westbound Highway 20 for several hours while rescue crews worked to extract everyone from the damaged vehicles and clear the roadway.
One bus driver was pinned inside the damaged bus and had to be cut free, according to investigators. She was airlifted to a local hospital where she is currently listed in stable condition. About fifty students were examined for injuries at the scene and in local emergency rooms, but all were released to their parents with only minor scrapes and bruises, according to the school district.
