SCHOOL BUS

An accident involving a school bus took place on High Falls Road around 8 a.m. Wednesday as students were making their way to Kennedy Road Middle School.

According to Adam Pugh, executive director of communications and partnerships for the Griffin-Spalding County School System, a driver of a passenger vehicle fell asleep at the wheel and rear ended a school bus when it was stopped at a bus stop.

He said that the GSCS nursing supervisor was on the scene to interview the children involved and that no children required transportation for medical services.

He said many local first responders also responded.

“The community did a really good job of being there and being helpful,” he said.

Pugh said there was minimal damage to the bus.
