Nearly a dozen people were injured after a church van and several other vehicles collided at a Buckhead intersection.
The traffic accident occurred at about eight o’clock on the evening of February 29th. The van from Northside United Methodist Church was carrying children ranging in age from 11 to 16. The van struck a vehicle in the intersection of Northside Drive and West Wesley Road and then hit a utility pole. Two other vehicles were involved in the crash.
The van’s driver sustained a shoulder injury. Ten others, including some of the children on the van, complained of injuries and were taken to the hospital for treatment. None of the injuries were life-threatening.
The cause of the wreck is under investigation by Atlanta police.
Even a minor accident can lead to extensive hospital and therapy bills. If your child is injured while a passenger on a school bus or a church van or while attending an after school activity, you are entitled to compensation for your child’s injuries, including medical costs and any time that you must take off work to care for your child.
