According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on ajc.com, some students and a bus driver were injured after two school buses collided in Gwinnett.
Two buses were stopped and one was loading children at Rockbridge Road and Rockbridge Way Monday morning when a third bus on its way to Camp Creek Elementary, rear-ended the second bus.
The driver of the third bus was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center with minor injuries. Ten of the 38 children on the third bus were treated at the scene by the Gwinnett Fire Department. No children were transported to the hospital. Neither the drivers nor the children on the first or second bus were injured. A monitor from the second bus complained of injuries but declined transport to the hospital.
The driver of the third bus was cited for following too close. It is not clear if there was a distraction which caused the third bus driver to look away or misjudge the distance between her vehicle and the one in front of them.
We are glad to know the injuries were not life threatening and that they were minimal. We wish everyone a fast recovery.
