ATLANTA (AP) - Five people died in a head-on collision with a bus late Wednesday night in Atlanta, officials said.

Seven people were inside a sedan that crossed a center lane just before 11 p.m., news outlets reported.

Of the seven people in the car, five were pronounced dead at the scene and two others were critically injured, Atlanta Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Jason Wozniak said. Three of the seven were thrown from the vehicle.

The victims haven’t been identified but police said at least some of them appeared to be children, according to news outlets.

The bus driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital to be treated. Three passengers were on the bus, but they weren’t hurt, Wozniak said.



No one inside a third vehicle involved in the crash was hurt, Wozniak said.
