DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- Students at two DeKalb County schools were transported to other schools after a car accident caused a water shortage in the buildings.

DeKalb County School District spokesman Quinn Hudson said Arabia Mountain High School and Murphy Candler Elementary School are both experiencing low water pressure Tuesday morning.

School buses were called in to move the students. Hudson said Arabia Mountain students were taken to Miller Grove and Lithonia high schools, while Murphy Candler students were taken to Salem Middle School.

The students will return to their schools between 1:15 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. for normal dismissal. Hudson said parents should pick up their children at their usual schools.

The water shortage is due to a car accident on Klondike Road, which is near both schools.
