Church bus crashes in Atlanta area; several injured

One person was killed and at least 21 were injured on Thursday when a bus chartered by a church youth group overturned on a major road southwest of Atlanta, Georgia, local media reported. Mount Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, Ala., posted on its Facebook page that one of its buses with its student ministry mission was involved in a crash while traveling to the airport.

The identities of the dead and injured are yet to be released.

Images from the scene showed the white bus tilted over and debris on the road.

Police are looking into the cause of the incident.

Three air ambulances were brought in to transport patients along with several Grady EMS ambulances, according to FOX 5 Atlanta. Most of the 15 patients at WellStar Atlanta Medical Center South in East Point have been reunited with their families, officials said.

The church posted on its Facebook page that there are "several serious injuries" but did not provide further details.
