Dawson, GA School Bus And Auto Collision, Dec 1941
6 KILLED, 13 HURT AS AUTO AND SCHOOL BUS COLLIDE IN GEORGIA.
Americus, Ga., Dec. 5. - (AP) - Six persons were killed and 13 injured early today when a fast-moving automobile and a school bus home bound from a basketball game crashed head-on near Dawson.
Among the dead was 20-year-old DOROTHY CASEY, who died at City Hospital here soon after the wreck, one of the worst in Georgia's history.
State Highway Patrol Sergeant J. P. Smith said four of the dead were soldiers from Fort Benning, Ga., and named them as BEN L. PEEL, CLIFTON H. TAYLOR, ADAM CORMER and E. N. McMULLEN.
Their rank, army organizations and home towns were not immediately available.
The sixth victim was unidentified although it was believed he was a passenger on the Webster County school bus which had been to a Union high school basketball game near Camilla.
Sergeant Smith said BILL TAYLOR, the bus driver, told him he attempted to dodge the oncoming automobile by swinging the bus clear off the highway.
