• Atlanta bus driver cited in I-20 wreck

    Updated:

    ATLANTA, Ga. - Georgia State Patrol says an Atlanta Public Schools bus driver has been cited in a morning wreck involving her three children.

    The unidentified bus driver has been cited with failure to maintain lane. Witnesses said she was speeding with her own children on board.

    GSP says the bus was traveling eastbound on I-20 and attempting to take the exit to Glenwood when it crashed into a Nissan and ran off the roadway.

    "Witnesses say she was going a high rate of speed. I can not calculate that. But as far as the evidence - the roadway evidence - shows that she did fail to maintain her lane. She will be cited for that," said Clye Anthony of the Georgia State Patrol.

    The children were checked at the scene.  The Nissan driver was transported to a hospital, but she seems to be OK, GSP said.

    The bus also slightly hit a parked truck, near the exit ramp, officials said.

    In addition to speaking with him, Channel 2's Sophia Choi is also in contact with Atlanta Public Schools to get the history of the bus driver and what action, if any, the district plans to take after the crash.
