2 people, including child, injured after car crashes into bus in Spalding County

Two people, including a child, were injured on Wednesday morning after a car crashed into a school bus on Teamon Road near Smoke Field Drive in Griffin, according to Georgia State Patrol.

GSP says that the bus was stopped to pick up a student when a car behind the bus was unable to stop and struck the rear of the bus. The car sustained significant damage and had to be towed from the scene.

The driver and a 9-year-old passenger sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to an area hospital. No students on the bus were injured.

The road was closed until the scene could be cleared.
