Channelview High School Band Involved In Bus Accident; 1 Killed

"A charter bus transporting Channelview High School band students was involved in an accident on Interstate 10 in Alabama early this morning".

Around 20 patients went to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, FL, while others were taken to hospitals in Baldwin County, including USA Medical Center in Mobile.

There were 45 people on the bus coming back from a trip to Disney World in Florida.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is underway.

The bus struck a bridge support when it landed in the ravine, and inspectors need to make sure the bridge is sound before reopening the interstate, he said.

Rescuers used every piece of equipment on every truck to reach them, Mack said: "This is what we call an all-out". He said he looked down to see the bus lying on its side near the base of a concrete embankment, its front end crumpled.

Tejeda said he watched four people being removed from the wreckage, and couldn't hear any yelling or sounds of panic.

The bus that returned to the school later in the day was driven past a throng of reporters and into a part of the school campus out of public view.

Baldwin County Sheriff's office confirmed that the driver of the bus has died and the injured students, one of which in critical condition and five in serious condition, have been taken to nearby hospitals.

"Everybody is being transferred to a hospital to at least be checked out", said Elliott.

Channelview Independent School District spokesman Mark Kramer said the district was in contact with law enforcement in Alabama to get more information.

First Class Tours, which operated the bus, said in a statement that the bus was carrying students home from Orlando, Florida, and the company is cooperating with investigators.

The bus was one of two carrying students and chaperones home from the trip.

She said he wasn't one of those that were injured.

News 5 has confirmed that the passengers aboard the charter bus are band members from Channelview High School (Texas).

Traffic was shut down on both sides of the interstate.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration records show that in the past two years, First Class Tours has been involved in four other crashes, including a fatal crash in Houston in May 2017.
