According to reports, the wreck happened around 4:50 pm Monday in the southbound lanes of I-285 near Glenwood Road.
School officials say the bus was transporting 19 students from Cedar Grove Middle School and Champion Theme School when it was allegedly rear-ended by a tractor-trailer. A DeKalb County Schools spokesperson said the bus was at a stop when the crash occurred and implied that the 18-wheeler was traveling too fast to avoid the bus.
The conditions of the injured students were not immediately available, but head, back, and neck injuries were reported.
The crash remains under investigation.
