DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (CBS46) - One lane on I-20 east in Douglasville has re-opened after Georgia Department of Public Safety officials say the driver of a blue Honda Civic “did not slow down in time” and rear-ended a school bus with children on board on Friday afternoon.

Emergency crews responded to a crash near the Midway Road overpass on I-20 east before Lee Road on Friday afternoon.

Georgia Department of Transportation officials confirmed the school bus is owned by an Alabama daycare facility.

A photo of the crash on Georgia 511 shows what appears to be a car underneath the back of the school bus.
