10 Injured in Crash Between MARTA Bus, Truck in DeKalb County, Georgia


May 21, 2019

DEKALB COUNTY, GA. – According to an online news report published at 11alive.com, 10 people were injured in a crash between a MARTA bus and a truck in DeKalb County, Georgia. The extent of injuries is not yet clear, and authorities are still in the process of investigating the accident.* 

Authorities were called to the scene of a two-vehicle collision on Redan Road in DeKalb County and found on arrival that a truck and a MARTA bus had crashed into each other. It appears the bus was traveling west on Redan Road, and the truck turned in front of it. 

No information about the truck was included in the report, so it is not clear if it was a pickup truck or another type of truck. Authorities did not provide immediate details about what led to the accident or why the driver of the truck turned into the path of the bus. 

11 Alive reports that 10 people were injured in the accident. The report says the driver of the truck was included in the 10 injured but did not say whether the bus driver was injured. It is not clear how many people were on board the bus at the time of the accident or how many people were riding inside the truck. 

The extent of injuries is not clear at this time. 11 Alive reported that a spokesperson for MARTA, Stephany Fisher, said that it did not appear anyone’s injuries were serious. No one involved was identified.
