Wrong-Way Driver Hits Atlanta Bus; 13 Injured

ATLANTA — Authorities say a MARTA bus has collided head-on with another vehicle, injuring 13 people including a 3-year-old girl.

The accident happened Wednesday afternoon.

MARTA spokesman Lyle Harris tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that it appears there were no life-threatening injuries. All of those hurt were on board the bus.

Harris said officials are concerned about the condition of the toddler.

Officials say the child was taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston and others were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Authorities say the bus was on route 119 around 2 p.m., near the Indian Creek MARTA station off Redan Road. Authorities say the other vehicle swerved into its lane. Harris says the bus was struck on its front left side.

DeKalb police told WSB-TV the vehicle involved was an SUV.
