November 2, 2009 - College Band Members Hurt in Bus Crash

Thirteen members of the Morehouse College marching band were hurt Saturday when their bus overturned on an interstate in Georgia, authorities said.

Capt. Jason Bolton with the Henry County Police Department said the 13 students suffered non-life-threatening injuries when their bus hydroplaned and overturned while traveling on I-75 toward Albany, Ga., for a football game, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The injured students were taken to various hospitals. The bus's 29 other occupants were also checked for injuries at an area hospital.

The identities and ages of those hurt were not reported.

The accident on I-75 South prompted the temporary closure of all lanes near Hudson Bridge Road, Bolton said.

After going out of control, the bus came to rest nearly 30 feet off the roadway, the Journal-Constitution said.
