INDIANAPOLIS (WWJ) – There are more details being released about a bus crash in Indianapolis that left three people dead. Officials say the youth pastor of Colonial Hills Baptist Church and his pregnant wife were among the three who died in Saturday’s bus crash.

The incident happened as a youth church group was returning from Camp CoBeAc in Northern Michigan.

Cindy Ferrier is the director’s assistant at the camp.

“We are grieving with the families from Colonial Hills Baptist Church at this time and we are grateful for the opportunity that we had to minister to the campers that were here last week,” said Ferrier. “And we are grateful that we had time to spend with them and pray with them.”

Dozens were injured in the crash. The bus driver told authorities that the brakes failed before it hit the median and flipped over.
