Two Harrison High School students were severely injured in a Cobb school bus crash on Wednesday afternoon when their car collided with the bus.
The bus driver also ended up with injuries. The crash occurred on Due West Road.
Officer Sydney Melton, Cobb police spokeswoman, said that fortunately, no other passengers were traveling on the bus when the two vehicles crashed into each other, shortly before four in the afternoon.
Stephen Randall, a minor (seventeen-years-old), was driving a Mazda sedan when he crossed a double yellow line near Antioch Road. The bus was coming down the road when the Mazda hit in it. Randall had another passenger in the car with him, his fifteen-year-old brother. The passenger was airlifted to Egleston Hospital.
Both brothers were students at Harrison High School.
Robin Blackstone, the bus driver, was the only person on the bus. He suffered injuries and was immediately taken to the Well Star Kennestone Hospital.
