ATLANTA - Georgia authorities say the deadly crash of a church bus began when the driver attempted to change lanes and collided with another vehicle.

Fulton County Police said in a news release that the driver then steered to the left, lost control and the bus crossed over an uneven median and rolled over. The bus slid into a car traveling on the westbound side of the four-lane road.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office previously identified the person killed as 17-year-old Sarah Harmening of Huntsville, Alabama.

Police say she died at the scene.

The 37 other people in the van were taken to area hospitals for a variety of injuries, along with three other people in the other vehicles. Authorities say they don't believe any of those injuries are life threatening.
