Bus driver suffers stroke at the wheel

IRWIN CO., GA (WALB) - A female bus driver was taken to Tift Regional Hospital for treatment of what appears to be a stroke, which happened as she was driving an empty school bus just inside the Irwin County line.

Sheriff's officials say she was headed north toward Ocilla on Highway 319, and had not long been inside the county, when she pulled the bus to the shoulder of the road.

Three Irwin County deputies and two ambulances responded to assist.
