One person was killed and 4 others are in critical condition after a church bus carrying a church youth group overturned on busy Camp Creek highway in Atlanta on Thursday afternoon.

Multiple emergency vehicles responded to the crash site. Firefighters used the jaws of life to remove some of the victims. A total of 21 people were injured after the bus crashed into a Mercedes Benz and rolled over onto the car near the Wolf Creek Amphitheater in South Fulton.

The victims were transported to 5 separate area hospitals. According to Channel 2 News, the church bus belonged to Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, Ala. The high school students and their teachers were on their way to Hartsfield Airport to fly to a mission in Africa.

The deceased victims have not been notified pending notification of next of kin.

    Satan is NOT stronger than God now or forever more. I don't have answer for why this happened, but I know that it is not because Satan is stronger than God Almighty.

    When has Camp Creek Parkway not been a mess? To many impatient YOU KNOW WHO motorist that would come to a complete stop at a red light and than run it because it's taking to long and she doesn't want to pay that $100 late fee at the daycare again.

    You said "Gawd" no problem. God never sleeps nor slumbers, the earlier you surrender to Him the better. Wait, you should show concern for the dead and the injured.

  • BeUtFullSoul

  • kekeb

    You have some resentment or anger somewhere, and it's clear that you are blaming God. I'm going to pray for you, even though you don't think you need it

  • kekeb

    Pray for him/her

  • kekeb

    SOOOOOOO, for clarification you're not a Christian

  • n1kk1a

    I am, but it doesn't state that God has a gender, so who's to say God is a man?

  • ThaRealist StudioGangster

    ?????Am I wrong?
