Colquitt County, GA (WALB) –- A group of scared three and four year olds and three adults were taken to the hospital Wednesday morning after their school bus and a convertible collided in south Colquitt County.
Three women were transported to a hospital after a car and a Child Development Center bus collided in Colquitt County about 8:00AM.
Approximately eleven children were on the Culbertson Headstart bus, but they were not injured.
It appears that the driver of the car, the driver of the bus, and another adult on the bus were injured, but the injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
"The bus driver did a good job of moving to the right to avoid a direct head on collision. So it was more of a side-swipe opposite direction. But the impact did cause the bus to go onto the right shoulder," said Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Tracey Tabb.
"The kids are all OK with the exception of a couple who kind of banged their knees up. They said it was nothing major," said Community Action Council's Randy Weldon.
Moments before that wreck, a Colquitt county sheriff's deputy crashed in north Colquitt county between Doerun and Moultrie.
Around 7:00AM, 33-year-old Deputy David Pierce and 25-year-old Norma Landeros of Moultrie were both traveling north on Hwy 133.
Landeros stopped to make a left hand turn into the Mobley Plant driveway. Troopers say seconds later Deputy Pierce slammed into the back of Landeros' Nissan Maxima after he looked down for a second.
The two ended up in the south bound ditch and both were rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, troopers say seatbelts are to thank for that.
The deputy was charged with following too closely. Landeros was charged with driving unlicensed.
