Deadly Bus Crash on I-75 in Georgia

ATLANTA (AP) - More than two dozen people have now been treated at Atlanta hospitals for injuries suffered in a charter bus crash that left six others dead.

The bus, carrying a college baseball team from Ohio, plunged off a highway ramp early today and slammed into the pavement below. There were 35 people aboard.

The wreck left sports equipment scattered across the road. Police say the bus driver may have mistaken a car pool exit ramp for the regular car pool lane that continues down Interstate 75.

The baseball team was from Bluffton University, a Mennonite-affiliated school south of Toledo.

The wreck took place in clear, pre-dawn weather.
