There were a total of three children in the van, all between 2 and 7 years old. One of them, a 4-year-old girl, was “ejected from the left passenger side window and onto the ground face first at impact,” according to the report. All three were taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, where they remained Friday in the intensive care unit.
Two adults in the van and two passengers in the bus were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital. Their conditions were not known Friday.
In a statement issued Tuesday night, Cobb County said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the driver, the children, their families and their caregivers involved in the accident in Smyrna. … As always, county staff will cooperate as needed with the city of Smyrna Police Department on the investigation as it progresses.”
