School bus involved in accident

CRISP CO., GA (WALB) - A Crisp County school bus was involved in a collision Friday morning around 7:45 on Highway 300.

Two vehicles were involved, in addition to the bus.

The Georgia State Patrol says that 17-year-old Christopher Fennell was driving down 300 North and tried to cross 300, to turn on to Kelly Road in front of traffic, and that caused the accident.

35 year old Julian Barranco-Marquez was traveling south on 300 when Fennell turned in front of him. He swerved to miss Fennell, but hit the bus. He and his two passengers all had minor injuries, according to GSP.

The school bus was in the turn late waiting to turn on US 300 south when it was hit. Sixteen students and school bus driver were uninjured.
