ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A driver has died in a head-on crash with a school bus in Newton County.

Authorities say a car and a school bus were involved in an accident Friday afternoon in Covington — about 35 miles east of downtown Atlanta.

Sherri Davis-Viniard, Newton County schools spokeswoman, says the bus was carrying students from Indian Creek Middle School. School officials say students were evaluated at the scene and did not appear to be injured.

The cause of the accident was not immediately clear.
