It is unfortunate that automobile accidents often involve injury and even fatalities. Combined with the destruction of property, a single auto accident can affect a person for years to come. Auto accidents are on the rise in Georgia.
On Monday, February 15th, 2016 an accident involving two vehicles and a school bus left a 20-year old woman from Adairsville dead and several others injured.
At about 7:45 am, a blue minivan struck a silver Nissan Altima driven by Chelsea Chapman. The accident occurred at the intersection of Georgia 3 and Manning Mill Road. Chapman’s Altima was stopped at the stop sign and the minivan was traveling northbound on Ga 3. Chapman then entered the intersection, attempting to make a left hand turn. The blue minivan impacted the driver’s side of Chapman’s Altima.
The impact sent the minivan spinning into the side of a school bus who was stopped at the stop sign. A passenger in the minivan was ejected and pinned between the school bus and the van.
That passenger, a 22-year-old male, was taken to Floyd Medical Center with head and leg trauma. It is also suspected that his pelvis had been fractured. Two other occupants of the minivan were also taken to Floyd Medical Center with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
Chapman died at the scene.
There were no children on the school bus at the time of the accident. The only passengers, the driver and a monitor, were uninjured.
