ATLANTA (May 24, 2013)--Sixteen people were taken to hospitals Friday after a crash between a hotel shuttle bus and a tractor-trailer near Atlanta's airport.

Initial reports listed the number of injured at 18.

Atlanta Fire Rescue Department spokeswoman Janet Ward says the accident happened at around 10:30 a.m. Friday.

She said it's not immediately clear what caused the accident.

Ward said there were 16 people on the bus at the time of the accident.

Nine were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, including one who was in critical condition.

The other nine were taken to Atlanta Medical Center.

Ward says the bus served Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn and Hilton hotels and was headed to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International airport.

Overhead shots from WSB-TV show the shuttle ran into the left side of the trailer that was stretched across the road.
