2 injured in accident involving tractor-trailer, bus on I-20 in Carroll County

Posted: Updated:

Only one left lane is open on I-20 west at mile marker 20 in Carroll County because of an accident that caused all lanes to be shut down earlier Wednesday.

Around 6:10 a.m., police said a bus was traveling at a slow rate of speed in the right lane of I-20 west around mile marker 21 when a FedEx truck struck the bus in the rear.

After impact, both vehicles traveled off the right shoulder of the roadway and overturned. At some point after the crash, both vehicles caught on fire.

The bus driver was injured and taken to Tanner Medical Center in Villa Rica.

The FedEx truck driver airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.

A CBS46 viewer called and said that he lives a mile away from the crash, and heard the collision and three loud booms. He said he saw flames over the tree tops.

Georgia State Patrol is investigating.

CBS46.com will have more details as they become available.
