3 students injured in school bus crash in DeKalb

Three high school students were injured Monday afternoon and taken to a hospital after a school bus crash involving another car in DeKalb County, officials said.

The crash occurred just before 3:50 p.m. on I-285 northbound, just south of I-20, DeKalb County police Lt. Lonzy Robertson said.

Police said the driver of the car lost control and sideswiped the bus after being rear-ended by another car. The two vehicles remained at the scene.

School officials said seven Stone Mountain High School students were on the bus at the time. Three complained of headaches and were taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, DeKalb County Schools spokesman Andre Riley said in an emailed statement. They were released from the hospital later in the evening.

Police did not release the identities of the injured students, but said two were 17 years old and another was 18.

No other details were released.
