The incident happened around 9:50 a.m. Monday.

It’s believed that the Homeland Park Baptist Church van was headed to Georgia for a day trip because there wasn’t any luggage, firefighters say.

Firefighters say all the passengers were adults.

Traffic is moving again on I-85, but it is slow in the southbound lanes for miles.
