Columbus police are investigating a Muscogee County School District bus crash that happened near Macon Road and Chattsworth Road.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, a school bus crashed into a tree in Liberty County, Georgia.

The driver, Evelyn Rodriguez, 62, was reportedly still in Memorial Health Center in Savannah Tuesday afternoon, but her condition was not available. The bus was equipped with surveillance cameras which will be analyzed to figure out the cause of the crash, according to King.

Liberty County EMA Deputy Director Larry Logan said that the bus was going down Ray Road toward Highway 196 when it went off the road and into a ditch, WTOC reported.

Ambulances from Liberty, Long and Tatnall counties responded to the scene along with an ambulance from Winn Army Hospital.

Hodges said the roads had been foggy in the area early Tuesday, but authorities reiterated it was too early to know if the weather played a role in the crash.

The crash took place around 50 miles southwest of Savannah and about 235 miles southeast of Atlanta.
