Students survive school bus crash in Cobb County

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Several students are now back in class following a crash involving the school bus they were on and another car.

The accident happened just after 7 a.m. Tuesday along Austell Road at McDuffie road in Cobb County.

District officials told Channel 2's Audrey Washington the driver of the special education bus was headed to Sanders Elementary.

They said seven students and two adults were on the bus.

Police said none of the students were hurt, but the driver of the car was injured.


Firefighters had to cut the roof off of the car to rescue the driver, who they said was speaking and alert at the scene. He is expected to be OK, officials said.

Austell Road was shut down for several hours Tuesday morning, but reopened at about 9 a.m.

Police are working to determine which driver was at fault.

The accident remains under investigation.

"The back tire of the bus was literally sitting in the front seat, there was just the one man in the car. They unloaded the kids after a little bit," witness Heather Edwards said.
