Church bus crashes near Atlanta, killing 1

The Huntsville community is coalescing around the Mount Zion Baptist Church family as transportation to Atlanta is being provided, blocks of hotels rooms are being booked, and local leaders are doing everything possible to aid and assist the relatives and friends of those affected.

Smith said at least 10 other people received medical attention at the scene but were not taken to the hospital.

A church bus with Alabama high schoolers on board overturned while headed to the Atlanta airport this afternoon, according to the church.

Fire officials told FOX 5 one person is dead, another critical, and 38 injured in total.

Fulton County Fire Chief Larry Few told the Associated Press crews are working to cut another person out of the bus, but their condition was not immediately available.

The condition of the two people in the auto was not known, police said. Reporters on scene said people were loaded onto stretchers and one person was trapped in the bus.




Grady Memorial Hospital said they received 9 patients.

Harnering was one of several on a bus carrying students on their way to the airport for a mission trip to Botswana. Four were in critical condition. "Several serious injuries. Please pray for those injured and parents as they travel to Atlanta", the post said.

The bus was from Mount Zion Baptist Church, located near the intersection of Jeff and Mount Zion roads in Huntsville.

"We know there was a wreck, some injuries. Couldn't get much information, but him and his mama were fine", Vandiver said. The pastor and families of those involved are flying to Atlanta shortly.

Police are on the scene of a crash involving a church bus and a vehicle in south Fulton County, Georgia. Officials at the church told WAAY-TV that the church will remain open for the next 24 hours for people to come in and pay their respects. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the folks at Mount Zion Baptist".
