DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — Fire officials say about a dozen people have been injured after a crash that involved an Emory University bus, an ambulance and another vehicle just east of Atlanta.

Authorities say that the wreck happened around 6 a.m. Tuesday and that the bus crashed into a building.

DeKalb County Fire & Rescue Deputy Chief Garrett Smith says at least one injury is considered critical.

Smith says 10 people were taken to hospitals.

Smith says the Emory bus and the ambulance, which he described as a medical transport vehicle, somehow collided at an intersection. He says the cause is still being investigated.

Emory University spokeswoman Elaine Justice says the shuttle bus had begun its route from a park-and-ride stop at a mall and was taking people to campus.
