Bus full of students, sports car involved in Friday night crash in Pickens County

A serious crash involving a charter bus and a black Infiniti sports car shut down the southbound lanes of GA 5 and Interstate South Drive on Friday night, according to Georgia State Patrol.

GSP says that investigators determined that the sports car turned left in front of the bus, which was carrying 40 occupants, the majority of which were juveniles attending a school function.

The charter bus, which is owned by R&W Coach and Bus Company, struck the car on its passenger side.

All of the occupants of the bus were able to exit the bus at approximately 9:33 p.m. A person at the bus company told FOX 5 on Friday night that their bus driver received minor injuries as well as a juvenile on the bus. The bus company also told FOX 5 that the students went to a high school in DeKalb County. FOX 5 has not confirmed what school the students attend or what function they were attending.

GSP says the driver of the Infiniti is in critical condition and 2 people from the bus were transported to a hospital for injuries.

One lane was reopened to traffic around 10:45 p.m. until the scene could be completely cleared.
