Two School Buses Involved in Collisions in Georgia, Tennessee on Same Day


February 11, 2019

SUMMERVILLE, GA. – According to an online news story reported at wdef.com, two school buses were involved in vehicle collisions on the same day in Georgia and Tennessee. It is not clear if anyone was injured in either crash, and no one involved in the crashes has been identified at this time.* 

Both accidents happened on the afternoon of February 5. At about 4:30 p.m., a bus with Chattooga County Schools in Georgia was traveling in the area of Highway 114 and Highway 100 in Summerville, Georgia. At the intersection of the two highways, a logging truck sideswiped the school bus. 

The logging truck continued on the highway after the collision and did not stop. Authorities are wondering if the driver knew he hit another vehicle. Photos from the scene show a hole in the bus with wood debris hanging from it. It is not clear how many students were on board the bus at the time or whether anyone on the bus was injured. 

At nearly the same time, a bus with Rhea County Schools in Tennessee was traveling on Highway 27 in Spring City, Tennessee. At the North red light, the school bus somehow collided with another vehicle. The make and model of the vehicle were not reported, and the circumstances of the collision were not provided in reports. 

It is also not clear how many students were on this school bus at the time of the crash. Reports have not yet confirmed whether anyone was injured in this accident. 

Authorities are investigating both accidents, and no further information has been released at this time.
