The Mt. Zion Baptist Church bus that was involved in a fatal wreck near Atlanta slid more than 130 feet after it hit another car and overturned, a crash report shows.
The bus, driven by 71-year-old Jerry Sims, struck a 2017 Chrysler 200 on Camp Creek Parkway during an improper lane change, according to the initial report. The report was released today by the Fulton County Police Department in Georgia.
Sims, who remains hospitalized, has been charged with misdemeanor second-degree homicide by vehicle and failure to maintain lane in the crash that killed 17-year-old missionary Sarah Harmening. Harmening was a passenger in the bus that was headed from Huntsville to an Atlanta airport. Harmening and her youth group from Mt. Zion were on their way to a mission trip in Africa.
