Devastating Church Bus Crash Leaves One Dead, Dozens Injured

An Alabama church bus crashed outside of Atlanta, killing one and injuring dozens, according to multiple news reports. The bus, from Mount Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama, was taking high school students to the airport for a mission trip.

A post on the church’s Facebook page says: “PRAY! One of the buses with the student ministry mission had an accident on the way to the Atlanta airport. Several serious injuries. Please pray for those injured and parents as they travel to Atlanta.” Many people who live near the accident scene have posted on the page, volunteering housing for the families.

The crash took place around 3:30 p.m. along Camp Creek Parkway in Fulton County near the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, from where the students were headed to Africa, FOX 5 Atlanta reported. The bus was overturned and a car was partially underneath it. Police shut the parkway down following the accident.

Mount Zion, a megachurch established in 1855, welcomed a new senior pastor, Kevin Moore, last month. Focused on missions, the church describes itself as “partnering with the Holy Spirit in fulfillment of the Great Commission.”
