Northwestern Indiana church says all but 1 student released after bus slides down embankment


CORYDON, Indiana — A northwestern Indiana church says only one of 34 students had to be hospitalized after a bus rolled onto its side in southern Indiana.

First Baptist Church of Hammond administrative pastor Eddie Lapina tells The Times of Munster that a girl with a possible broken arm was taken to a hospital in Louisville, Kentucky. WLKY-TV reports the other students were checked out at hospitals and released.

Five adults were also on the bus carrying freshmen and sophomore girls to a church camp on Monday when it slid down an embankment along a county road near Corydon (KOHR'-eh-duhn).

Harrison County sheriff's chief deputy Wayne Kessinger says it appeared the bus driver was moving over to let oncoming traffic pass down the narrow road about 25 miles west of Louisville.
