KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - An Indiana church bus was involved in a fatal crash in Knoxville, Tennessee on Thursday evening.
There were 18 people on the bus at the time of the crash. The group from Berea Christian Church in Brazil, Indiana was in Knoxville on a mission trip.
Officials said four vehicles were involved in the crash. The bus driver said the brakes on the bus did not work and the bus ran a red light and hit a KIA Rio, officials with the Knoxville Police Department said.
The bus then hit a Chevrolet S10 pickup truck and went through an intersection onto CVS property where it hit a CVS sign and came to a stop.
After the KIA was hit by the bus, it was pushed into a Chevrolet Silverado. The driver of the KIA was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the driver of the KIA was sitting on top of the seat belt and was not restrained at all.
The 18 people on the church bus included the driver, three adults and 14 juveniles. Police said the three adults were taken to the hospital for minor injuries and two juveniles were taken to Children’s Hospital for minor injuries.
The driver of the S10 was not injured, but a passenger in the vehicle was taken to UT Medical Center with possible serious injuries. The passenger was not wearing a seat belt, officials said.
The Silverado only sustained minor damage after the impact with the KIA, police said.
The bus driver was not injured, but was taken to UT Medical Center for a blood draw, which is required by state law.
