18 inmates, 1 person injured in GA highway wreck

SCHLEY COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - A wreck on a stretch of highway in Schley County, Georgia sent 19 people to the hospital on Friday.

Eighteen of them were inmates on a prison bus headed to a facility in Lumpkin.

Sheriff Shane Tondee says a semi-truck struck a cement truck while trying to turn onto Highway 19.

The impact sent the truck into the bus that was waiting to cross the four-lane highway. No corrections officers on the bus were injured.

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the accident.
