Driver: Brakes on church bus failed in Indiana crash; 3 dead
“Everybody had boils and scrapes on them,” she said. “People were trying to climb from under the bus.”
Ms. Sample, a nurse, said she borrowed a belt to make a tourniquet for the bus driver’s arm but wasn’t able to help the man next to him, who was already dead.
“I couldn’t do anything for him,” Ms. Sample said. “So you triage. You help those you can.”
Fire officials said 37 people were on the bus, and the injured included children and adults. Three teenagers were still at IU Health Methodist Hospital, spokeswoman Sally Winter said Sunday, including one in critical condition. Five teenagers remained at the Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health; a toddler was treated and released.
Many of the patients had head, arm and leg injuries, fire officials said.
Families of the bus passengers gathered at the church Saturday evening to comfort one another and pray.
Mayor Greg Ballard described many as “remarkably positive” despite their sorrow, but he said there will be difficult days ahead.
“Some of the teenagers are hurting pretty bad, and you can see that in their faces,” he said.
Bob Taylor, who retired as the church’s pastor four years ago, said members of the congregation would come together Sunday and take comfort in their faith.
“Our church family will meet tomorrow and pray together and sing songs together and just trust the Lord to give his grace,” he said.
