PREVIOUS UPDATE: In Meigs County, an investigation is underway after a man's body was found along the side of a road in Decatur.

It was a group of Meigs County students and their alert bus driver who discovered the man's body along Eaves Ferry Road around 7:30 am Wednesday on their way to school.

"Your first concern is always with our kids, with making sure our kids are safe. And that was her primary concern," Meigs County Schools Superintendent Clint Baker said.

Baker had nothing but praise for one of his bus drivers after she and a bus full of students discovered the man's body on their way to school.

"She immediately called 911. And upon doing that, continued on the route. She tried to get the kids away from it just as soon as she could," he added.

The driver, who has been driving for less than a year for the school system, had 30 elementary, middle and high school students on board.

Once they got to school, counselors were on hand and parents were contacted.

Students who wanted to go home were allowed to.

"She handled the situation better probably than anybody else could have. She did a great job. She's an outstanding employee and a great person," Baker said.

Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation are working with Decatur Police, the Meigs County Sheriff's Office and the McMinn County Sheriff's Office.

They have not released the man's identity or how he died.
