Bus, train collide near Atlanta; no one hurt

Decatur, GA -

Authorities say a train and a public bus collided in an Atlanta suburb, causing traffic tie-ups at the start of the morning rush hour.

Police in Decatur tell WSB-TV that no passengers were on the bus at the time, and no injuries were reported.

The crash happened around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday near North McDonough Street and West Howard Avenue in Decatur, just east of Atlanta.

Witnesses tell WXIA-TV that the bus got stuck on the train tracks near Decatur High School before it was hit.

Video from the Atlanta stations show the bus alongside the train a few feet from the intersection, which was closed to traffic as authorities investigate what caused the accident.

The bus is part of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, or MARTA.
