A Newton County School System school bus was involved in a head-on collision on Mabry Road—just off of Highway 36, this afternoon at approximately 4:31 p.m. Six Indian Creek Middle School students from school bus route #233 were onboard when the accident occurred. Newton County EMS was called to the scene; however, no students were transported via ambulance for medical treatment.  Parents of all six students were notified immediately by school system officials. All students were released to their parents/guardians at the scene.

Newton County School System appreciates the quick response of the Newton County Sheriff’s Office, Newton County Fire Service, and Newton County EMS. We are now awaiting the Georgia State Patrol to complete the investigation process.
