20 Hurt in Dooly County Bus Crash

VIENNA, Ga.- The Georgia State Patrol says 20 people were taken to hospitals after a bus carrying a group of students from Mill Creek High School in Buford was involved in an accident in Dooly County.

The patrol says the Sunday afternoon crash in middle Georgia involved two other vehicles and there were 52 people on the bus.

The patrol says the accident happened in a construction zone, and sent the bus crashing into an overpass bridge.

State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright says 19 of the 20 taken to hospitals were taken there for precautionary purposes, but a 20th person was airlifted to a hospital in Macon. Wright says that person is in stable condition.

A Gwinnett County school system spokeswoman says another bus was sent to pick up the students.
