A Mercedes rear-ended bus heading to North Atlanta High school this morning shortly after 8 a.m., sending the bus driver and the driver of the car to the hospital, according to Atlanta Police and Atlanta Public Schools officials. The accident happened at the intersection of Roswell Road and Chastain Drive. None of the students were injured and they made it to school on a different bus, according to Atlanta Schools spokesman Keith Bromery.
Officer John Chafee with Atlanta Police Department said an officer cited the driver of the Mercedes for following too closely.
“The bus driver was transported to the hospital for a complaint of neck pain and the car driver was transported for a complaint of neck and back pain,” Chafee said.
