Hall County students who take the bus home on East Ridge Road in East Hall are having to find another way home.

The road was closed because of a wreck at about 2:30 p.m. that resulted in a utility pole blocking the roadway, according to authorities.

Students attending White Sulphur Elementary, East Hall Middle and East Hall High school live on East Ridge.

"Affected students are being held at their school," Superintendent Will Schofield said in a memo to employees. "We are in the process of calling parents immediately at the affected schools."

He added that "it may be several hours before the road is open."

The wreck took place at Old Cornelia Highway. A gray sedan overturned and struck a power pole, with one person suffering minor injuries, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

Georgia Power responded to the scene.
