SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

The man wanted for crashing his car into a Worth County school bus turned himself in Monday morning, and is currently in the Worth County Jail.

Lt. Ronnie Graddy of the Sylvester Police department says that  Jonathan Tellis surrendered today, after he ran from the wreck that happened last Wednesday.

Graddy said a Worth County School bus, carrying 10 students, was involved in a wreck on West Street in Sylvester. 

The bus had just dropped off several students when a 1988 Chevrolet Caprice Classic traveling west on West Street, lost control of the vehicle and struck the bus. 

No injuries were sustained from either vehicle.  The Caprice was driven by Tellis, who drove away in the vehicle.

  The vehicle was recovered behind a mobile home on Curtis Street. 

Tellis is charged with driving while license suspended, leaving the scene of an accident, and reckless driving.
