Bus crash

The driver was killed Tuesday morning when a bus carrying Texas high school students returning home from a Disney World trip plunged into a ravine near the Alabama-Florida line.

Sheriff Huey Moss Mack says Interstate 10 was closed in both directions and Alabama State troopers asked people to avoid the area.

It was not immediately clear what caused the bus to veer off the road.

The injured passengers were taken to hospitals by helicopter and ambulance, Lowery said.

Channelview High's graduates include University of Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts, who tweeted: "Wow, praying for everyone involved!"

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.

A bus carrying students from Texas plunged into an Alabama ravine early Tuesday. The bus fell several feet below the interstate into a ravine.

"I felt hopeless and like I couldn't do anything", said Josh Torres, the brother of one of the victims.

Conte calls for 'great resilience' against Barcelona - after narrow win over Palace
- Chelsea posted 27 shots in this game; their most in a Premier League game this season and since May 21 2017 vs Sunderland (28). The gaffer hints that he trusts the two forwards but refused to guarantee them a place in the starting line-up against Palace.

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

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. He said he did not know how many passengers were injured, but said they were "numerous".

Baldwin County commissioner Christ Elliott said first responders "are having to rappel down" to access the crash site. That bus stopped after realizing what happened, but did not allow the students to get off, and eventually continued on to Channelview, a Houston suburb of about 38,000.

The bus pulled into Channelview High School east of Houston under police escort Tuesday afternoon.

Kramer said immediate details were limited and school authorities are in contact with law enforcement in Alabama to get more information.

Here are three things Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration records revealed about the company. It was one of two buses transporting the students back to Texas.

The bus' front axle appeared separated from the vehicle and at least two doors to luggage compartments had been ripped off the side.
