A law enforcement source said one person was killed in the crash, CBS affiliate WGCL-TV reports.

Authorities say a church bus carrying dozens of people has crashed near Atlanta, killing one person and injuring several others.

The bus was from Mount Zion Baptist Church, located near the intersection of Jeff and Mount Zion roads in Huntsville.

Grady Memorial Hospital said they received 9 patients. Other hospitals that received patients included Atlanta Medical Center, Atlanta Medical Center and Southern Regional Medical Center, according to Grady officials.

The bus was overturned at the intersection of Camp Creek Parkway and Merk Road in southwest Atlanta.

"Life changes so rapidly on us, you know?"

One person was killed and nearly 40 injured in a traffic accident involving a bus with school children in the area of Atlanta American. Of those, four were in critical condition, three in fair and one was listed in stable condition.

The wife and son of Madison County Commission Phil Vandiver were among about 40 people who were on the bus.

Church members said family members of those seriously injured planned late Thursday to travel to Atlanta. The pastor and families of those involved are flying to Atlanta shortly. "Couldn't get much information, but him and his mama were fine", Vandiver said.

The church posted a message on Facebook saying, "PRAY!"
