DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -

A car struck a school bus outside Lithonia High School on Monday.

The collision occurred at Creek Ford Lane and Phillips Road, not far from the high school.

The 17-year-old driver of the car was being checked out in an ambulance. His mother, a teacher at the school, said that he was leaving with the school with a friend when a car stopped in front of him. He swerved to avoid the car and the pole and collided with the bus.

The 17-year-old complained of back injuries and arm injuries. His passenger was also checked out.

A student on the bus did have a bandage on her face but seemed fine and talking, FOX 5's Denise Dillon said.

His mom says she is extremely relieved that no one was seriously hurt.

    Prosecutors considered him their key witness, a longtime Gwinnett developer given immunity to spill what he knew about corruption inside county government. David Jenkins testified before a Gwinnett grand jury in 2010. He also met multiple times with prosecutors. Those interviews were videotaped. Four years later, prosecutors agreed to a no contest plea bargain with former commissioner Kevin Kenerly on one count of bribery. He will serve 10 years on probation and pay a $10,000 fine.
