Thomas County- Rowdy students may be to blame for a four bus accident in Thomas County that sent 11 students to the hospital Tuesday afternoon.

No one was seriously hurt when the four buses collided Tuesday afternoon as they were leaving Thomas County High School.

Driver Stephen Nesmith of Thomasville told the GSP he turned around to deal with unruly students and when he turned back around it was too late. Nesmith was cited for following too close.

"I issued him a citation. Any time the Georgia State Patrol investigates an accident and we're bale to determine fault a citation is issued at the time," said Sgt. J.K. Luke, GSP-Thomasville.

The eleven students suffered only cuts and bruises. The GSP credited the fast thinking of one driver who saw the accident coming and held his brakes to lessen the impact.
