SOUTH FULTON, Ga. – Authorities say a teen is dead and 39 others were injured Thursday after an accident involving a bus and two other cars in Fulton County

Authorities say the victim, 17-year-old Sarah Harmening, a church missionary was killed after the bus in which she was riding overturned.

Authorities say the crash happened around 3:30 p.m. along Camp Creek Parkway after the bus carrying a youth group from Mt Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama, attempted to change lanes. It struck a Chrysler 200 which was already in the lane. The collision caused the bus driver to steer to the left and lose control.

The bus then entered the uneven median and rolled over, according to police. The upside down bus then slid  into a Mercedes that was traveling in the westbound lanes, according to investigators.

On the Mt Zion Baptist Church Facebook page the church posted:

“PRAY! One of the buses with the student ministry mission had an accident on the way to the Atlanta airport. Several serious injuries. Please pray for those injured and parents as they travel to Atlanta.”

According to the church, the group of high school students were headed to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to begin a mission trip to Africa.
