A driver was transported to Piedmont-Newnan Hospital Wednesday afternoon following an accident with a school bus near Evans Middle School.

Around 3:15 p.m., the school bus, which was not transporting any kids, was traveling eastbound on Highway 16 attempting to turn left onto Evans Drive when it was rear ended by a Mazda MPV, said Georgia State Patrol officials. The passenger’s side of the Mazda struck the rear driver’s side of the school bus, spinning the Mazda clockwise to face the opposite direction on the westbound side of the highway.

According to authorities, the driver of the school bus complained of injuries, but was not transported to the hospital — the 82-year-old driver of the Mazda suffered was transported to Piedmont-Newnan Hospital, and according to radio traffic, suffered from head lacerations. The road was closed for approximately 45 minutes, GSP officials said.
