Alabama Bus Crash: 4th Student Dies

By  | 

Authorities in Alabama say a fourth girl has died from injuries she received yesterday in a school bus crash in Huntsville.

The girl was on the bus that fell 30 feet off of an interstate overpass. Authorities say a car driven by another high school student apparently hit the bus or came close to it, causing it to swerve.

More than 30 students and the bus driver had to be taken to local hospitals. Two teenage girls died in the wreckage and a third died yesterday at a hospital.

The bus driver, who was found critically injured on the overpass, is among 15 patients who remain hospitalized.
