Georgia school bus driver killed in wreck with utility truck

By The Associated Press

THOMASTON, Ga, (AP) — A Georgia school bus driver died when a school bus and utility truck collided Friday morning south of Atlanta.

Two students suffered minor injuries.

The Georgia State Patrol identified the driver as 69-year-old Sebastian Ciarcia of Yatesville. State troopers say Ciarcia crossed into the opposite lane of a two-lane road, hit the utility truck, and then lost control of the bus as it ran off the road and crashed into trees.

The bus driver was working for the Thomaston-Upson County school district. Officials tell news outlets that three students were on the bus at the time of the wreck. Two were taken to a hospital in Thomaston.

The third student on the bus and the truck driver were not injured.
