ATLANTA (AP) -- Police say 13 students were injured when a charter bus taking Morehouse College marching band members to a football game skidded off a Georgia interstate and overturned.
Henry County police Capt. Jason Bolton says the bus landed on its side in a ditch around 10 a.m. Saturday on Interstate 75 south of Atlanta. Bolton says the driver lost control while trying to avoid another vehicle.
Bolton says 13 band members were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. The other 29 on board were also taken to hospitals as a precaution.
The bus was one of three chartered by Morehouse to go to Albany State University for a football game.
Roads were wet from rainy conditions, and Bolton says weather likely contributed to the wreck.
