ROCHESTER, Ind. (AP) — The Tippecanoe valley School Corporation says it’s relocating a bus stop after a pickup truck hit four students boarding a bus, killing three of the children and badly injuring the fourth.
Superintendent Blaine Conley of the Tippecanoe Valley School Corp. says the bus stop will move Thursday from along State Road 25 to a nearby park.
Conley also says he’s establishing a committee that will look at the safety of all the district’s bus stops. Members on the committee will include the sheriff’s of Fulton County as well as Kosciusko County.
The crash occurred Tuesday morning. Three siblings were killed: 6-year-old twin brothers Xzavier and Mason Ingle, and their 9-year-old sister, Alivia Stahl. An 11-year-old boy was badly injured and remains hospitalized.
A 24-year-old Rochester woman who was driving the pickup faces three counts of reckless homicide and a misdemeanor traffic violation.
Meantime, the parents of a the 11-year-old boy who survived say he remains hospitalized, but is in stable condition. They also thanked the community for supporting them and the family of the kids who died.
