Posted on May 12, 2011
Two school buses for Gwinnett Public Schools collided in Norcoss on the morning of April 25, 2011. The crash happened around 8:45 a.m. at the intersection of Rockbridge Road and Rockbridge Way. According to reports of this bus accident, a school bus that was en route to Camp Creek Elementary School was rear-ended by a Lilburn Middle School bus.
The Lilburn Middle School bus had 38 students on board at the time of the crash. Ten students alleged to have back and neck injuries after the accident. They were excused from testing that was scheduled at the middle school that day and will make up the Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Test another day. The Camp Creek Elementary School bus driver, bus monitor and two students on board did not complain of any injuries.
The school district says that this Gwinnett County school bus accident is under investigation and that both drivers involved will not be driving buses while the investigation takes place. The Lilburn Middle School bus driver has been ticketed by police for following too closely, and the driver was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center with injuries. The driver's name has not yet been released.
We extend our best wishes for a full and complete recovery to the driver and to the students injured in this Georgia bus crash.
