Eighteen people were taken to the hospital, including at least two in serious condition, after a crash between a hotel shuttle bus and a tractor-trailer near Atlanta's airport.

Police said the accident happened Friday morning on a road that loops around the world's busiest airport.

The front of the bus was badly damaged. The windshield was cracked and the engine block was smashed in and seriously damaged.

Seventeen bus passengers and the driver were taken to area hospitals, Stanley said. The driver of the bus suffered bumps and bruises and had to be pulled from the wreckage by rescuers.

None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, and the driver had been released from the hospital by Friday evening.
