Georgia: 2 school buses crash, 22 pupils checked at hospital

By The Associated Press

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (AP) — A crash between two school buses in east Georgia sent 22 students to a hospital to be checked Thursday morning, school officials said.

Further details on their conditions weren't immediately known.

Social Circle City Schools told news outlets the two buses were involved in a crash on Ga. 11, and that 22 of the students aboard the buses were taken for medical evaluation. School staff members were at the medical facility, Newton Piedmont Hospital, to meet families when they arrived.

It's unclear how many students were on the buses or their ages. The remaining students were taken to school on a separate bus.

Details about the crash weren't immediately released and authorities gave no indication whether stormy weather sweeping the state on Thursday had anything to do with it. The Georgia State Patrol is investigating.

Social Circle is in southern Walton County, about 45 miles (70 kilometers) east of Atlanta.
