Eleven Injured In Atlanta Church Van Accident


Posted on Jul 25, 2011

Eleven people were injured when their church van crashed in downtown Atlanta.  
 
The Atlanta traffic accident occurred on Sunday, July 24 at about 11 a.m. at the intersection of Pryor Street and Trinity Avenue. As the van belonging to the House of Faith Church travelled through the intersection, it collided with an SUV.  The impact caused the van to roll over. When the van rolled, it pinned the SUV against the corner of a building.
 
Nine children and one adult in the van were injured.  The driver of the SUV also sustained injuries. All the victims were taken to local hospitals; fortunately, none of the injuries were serious and they were treated and released.
 
Both drivers claim to have had the green light.
 
Large passenger vans used by churches, school groups and other organizations are especially prone to rollover accidents. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a warning that owners of such vans need to take extra steps to prevent injury to passengers.  The NHTSA has advised that such vans not be used to transport children.
