Three elementary school students suffered minor injuries this afternoon after the school bus they were in entered an intersection in East Hall County and was hit by a car. The driver of the car also was injured.

The bus was heading east at about 3 p.m. on Harmony East Drive before it entered the intersection with Harmony Church Road and was struck on the left side by a Buick Century, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

Hall County school system spokesman Gordon Higgins said the three injured children were not transported to the hospital, but were picked up by their parents. The other 15 children on the bus at the time were picked up by another school bus. All were students at Tadmore Elementary School.

The bus driver, Charles Chandler, 79, of Gainesville was charged with failure to stop at a stop sign.

School transportation director Jewel Armour said policy is that a driver cited for a moving violation receives a five-day suspension.

The driver of the Buick, Angelica Bailey, 25, of Flowery Branch was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with nonlife-threatening injuries. There were two children in her car.

Higgins said Hall County officials were at the hospital and Bailey’s children appeared to be OK.

Higgins said firefighters and law enforcement along with the principal and other staff members from Tadmore responded to the scene.
