21 People are in the hospital after a major traffic accident involving a church bus and pick-up truck.

The incident happened on the east side of the Ross Clark Circle in Dothan between the Southeast Alabama Medical Center and Highway 431.

Apparently 3 church busses were traveling from Lexington, KY. It's unclear where they were headed at the time but officials say the busses were loaded with a youth group and chaperones.

Dothan police and fire responded to the incident. It was raining at the time of the accident and officials believe the crash could have been weather related.

The incident backed up traffic significantly. Both southbound lanes were closed at the time and northbound lanes were turned into a two lane road.

All 21 injured were transported to both nearby hospitals.
