A teen driver and her 16-month-old baby are recovering Thursday night after crashing into a school bus head on outside of Moultrie.
It's a story we broke in an email alert Thursday morning.  Troopers say 18-year-old Mandy Lynn Davidson was texting and driving on Highway 37, a mile west of Moultrie, when she crossed the center line and hit a school bus head on. 
There were no children on the bus, but several people were injured.
This is what remains of 18-year-old Davidson's Lincoln Town Car after she hit an oncoming school bus as she was taking her 16-month-old son, Jonathan Conner, to daycare.
"This morning I was getting up and I just heard a loud bam! I came outside and looked. Didn't really see anything then I came down the step I saw the car," said onlooker Ken Bailey.
Georgia State Patrol troopers said Davidson was distracted by a text message when she swerved into oncoming traffic and hit the bus.
