Tragic Bus Crash in Atlanta

One Temple High School student was killed and 13 more were injured when a school bus ran off the road and flipped the afternoon of Monday, October 4. The cause of the accident is still unknown, although police report that a trainee accompanied by a more experienced driver was driving the bus at the time of the crash.

What we do know is that this accident will have an effect that resonates not just with the families of the victims, but throughout the community.

James Rashawn Walker was a 17-year-old with aspirations of going to college to study graphic design, according to The Atlanta Journal Constitution.
