A church bus accident over the weekend in Indianapolis killed three people returning from a church camp. A youth pastor and his pregnant wife were among those killed. The couple`s 2-year-old son survived the crash. The third victim was a mother with five children.
Investigators in this crash also do not know the cause.
A stupid driver may have caused this tour bus accident in Arizona Sunday. The bus driver tried to drive through raging waters that carried the bus about 300 yards before flipping it on its side.
No one died.
Authorities are considering charging the driver under Arizona`s Stupid Motorist law.
