Posted June 09, 2017

One person was killed and at least 21 were injured on Thursday when a bus chartered by a church youth group overturned on a major road southwest of Atlanta, Georgia, local media reported.

Smith said at least 10 people were hurt, including two critically.

At least one person died and almost two dozen others were injured in a crash involving a church bus and a auto in south Fulton County in Atlanta, Georgia.

Meanwhile, Mount Zion Baptist posted to its Facebook page that "churches around Atlanta have opened their homes to us and a Chick-fil-A branch has taken food". Of those, four were critical, three were in fair condition and one was listed as stable.

One of those church members is Madison County Commissioner Phil Vandiver.

Images from the site showed the bus had completely overturned by the side of the road and numerous emergency responders had arrived at the scene. Forty-people people were on the bus when the accident occurred, the TV station reported. The church said it was carrying adults and high school students in grades 11 and 12.

The pair met soon after the top USA diplomat in China resigned, allegedly in protest of Trump's Paris decision. California has been on the forefront in improving green energy sources.

"I got a hold of my son about two minutes after the accident and he was just rather shook-couldn't get much information but him and his mama was fine", Vandiver said. The girl who died was not a student in the district, he said.

The church spokesperson told WGCL-TV that 42 people were on the bus.

The National Transportation Safety Board said it was gathering information but hadn't yet chose to launch a team.

The church posted on its Facebook page that there are "several serious injuries" but did not provide further details.

"PRAY! One of the buses with the student ministry mission had an accident on the way to the Atlanta airport".
