ATLANTA (AP / CBS46) – A church bus carrying high school students and adults has crashed in the Atlanta area, leaving several people injured.

CBS46 in Atlanta is reporting that one person is dead and 21 hurt. They say 42 people were on the bus.

Mount Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama, posted on its Facebook page that a bus with its student ministry mission crashed while traveling to the airport.
