COMMERCE, Ga. (AP) - School officials say three children were seriously injured in a multi-vehicle crash while heading to school in north Georgia.

Jackson County Sheriff Janis Mangum tells local news media the crash occurred around 7:25 a.m. Thursday less than two miles from East Jackson Elementary School. Mangum says the crash involved three vehicles.

School spokeswoman Karen Bridgeman says the children were being driven to school by their father. She says two of the children were taken to Athens Regional Medical Center, while the other was airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Bridgeman says the crash involved a third-grade girl from East Jackson Elementary School. The two other students, including a 15-year-old boy, are 10th graders at East Jackson Comprehensive High School.

The conditions of others involved in the crash have not been released.
