Most of the injuries are minor

COVINGTON, Ga. | January 23, 2013


A collision in Georgia involving two school buses sent 43 people to the hospital, the Georgia State Patrol said.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said the crash took place outside of Rocky Plains Elementary School in Covington Tuesday.

Fifty-three students and adults were on board the buses.

Georgia State Patrol officials said the first bus slowed as the driver stopped to unload a child when the second bus rammed into it.

Most of the students suffered bumps and bruises, while some had concussions, a chipped tooth and sore legs.

The driver who caused the crash, who may be cited for following too closely, she suffered a broken sternum, a family member said.
