Three were confirmed killed today when a bus carrying teens home from a church camp in Michigan crashed in Indianapolis, Ind. The bus was carrying around 40 members of the Colonial Hills Baptist Church and was just miles from its destination when it overturned.

An Indianapolis Fire Department spokesman told reporters that those injured included both children and adults but would not confirm the ages of those killed.

    I pray for the injured, and the families of those killed… My big Brother drives a Coach Bus, so every time I hear a story like this, I get a little edgy…. He was up that way in Chicago (!) A couple of weeks ago… Jawamax 8<{D}

    I am praying for these young people. My good friend was working at the camp CoBeAc and met many of these victims.
