The driver of a church bus that crashed in Georgia last week is now facing criminal charges for his role in the accident.
Sims was behind the wheel of a church bus carrying roughly 40 church members of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama last Thursday when he attempted to change lanes and struck another vehicle. The bus then lost control and overturned on Camp Creek Parkway near Atlanta.
Sarah Harmening, 17, was killed in the crash and at least 39 others were injured.
The church members were bound for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport where they were to depart on a missionary retreat in Africa.
