Two brothers are dead after a crash between a car and a school bus near Ga. 92 in Roswell, police said.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office identified the brothers as 18-year-old James Pratt and 14-year-old Joseph Pratt. Both attended Lassiter High School in northeast Cobb County, according to Channel 2 Action News.

It was a bad day for metro Atlanta high schools, as four teenagers from Fulton County were also killed in the early afternoon.

The Pratt brothers died on impact when the car they were in drove under a special-needs bus from Roswell High School, Roswell police spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa Holland said.

Four students on the bus were shaken up, but unhurt, she said.

Ga. 92 was shut down at West Road for nearly two hours.

Grief counselors were on hand at Lassiter High on Tuesday to help students and staff, according to Channel 2.
