Show Notes

A Gwinnett County Public Schools bus was involved in a collision that caused it to flip onto its side Thursday morning, but Gwinnett police and GCPS officials said no serious injuries were reported.

The accident happened around 6:30 a.m. on Buford Highway near Sudderth Rd. in Sugar Hill, GCPS officials said, and involved a bus carrying special needs students to Lanier High School. 

Malfunctioning equipment sparked a fire that spread to a pipe in a corn mill and refinery at Olé Mexican Foods Inc.'s facility in unincorporated Norcross on Thursday morning, according to Gwinnett County fire officials.

Capt. Ryan McGiboney said firefighters were sent to the facility located at 6485 block of Crescent Drive at 8:04 a.m. after a fire alarm activated at the property. An employee also called 9-1-1 to report that smoke was coming from the sixth floor of the mill and that people were being evacuated from the building.

There will be no “Snow Mountain” at Stone Mountain Park this year, the park announced Tuesday on its web site.

It will be the third year in a row that the popular attraction will not be held at the park. ‘Snow Mountain’ began at the park in 2008 but hasn’t taken place since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

The attraction included Avalanche Alley, a 400-foot hill built for family-sized tubes of up to eight people and racing lanes. There was also a play area where visitors could make snowmen and snow angels or have a snowball fight.
