This happened earlier today and am surprised a thread has not popped up yet.

6 people confirmed dead at least 5 children in an elementary school bus crash in Tennessee . Driver is being questioned and speed is being heavily looked at as the cause.


Chattanooga police have said that there are "multiple" fatalities from this afternoon's school bus crash. District Attorney Neal Pinkston tells Channel 3 that five children were killed in the crash; the sixth child died at the hospital afterward. The crash happened Monday afternoon at 313 Talley Road, around 3:20 p.m.

You think your kids are safe when they get on that huge bus I just cant imagine.

God that is just so terrible. I can't really find any words. I just can't imagine........


What the hell happened? Were the roads bad? Was something wrong with the bus driver?

ETA: Holy cow! Am I seeing that right? It looks like the bus is folded around that tree? That is horrific looking. They must have been going very fast. Ugh what a nightmare.

I see bus drivers every day who think it's The Brickyard 400. I think there should be monitors on buses, that keep track of speed and how fast they take curves or turns. It's ridiculous that kids are killed because some just look at it as a paycheck, not a position of trust and a huge responsibility.

Oh my God. This is heart sickening.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,

They said they're looking at speed being a contributing factor, but all they've said so far is "something". The initial article I saw earlier said 12 children had been killed, with 23 sent to the hospital.

You think your kids are safe when you leave them to do a lot of things, honestly.

I'll bet every Sandy Hook parent thought their kid was safe that day, too.

It's a tragic world we live in when we find out honestly that there is nothing that is really safe for any of us. My son is sleeping in his room not even 100ft from me right now, and I know that he's not safe even though I'm right here.

I feel horrible for those poor families. This is no way to have a holiday.

how do you heal from losing a child..you dont.
i get so emotional from stories like these. a childs life is the most precious among lives.
a childs life is about happiness, curiosity, love and trust, and should be protected always.

I still dont understand why they dont have seat belts on school buses. It seems like a no brainer those are our children

How horrible, i can't even imagine going through something so traumatic. It's saddening when i hear about stories like these, it really makes you want to be a better person especially to those who love you and are always there for you. They could disappear at any moment, when it's all too late to make amends.

The bus driver has been arrested. Police have charged him with five counts of vehicular manslaughter, reckless endangerment, and reckless driving. They said that they are looking very closely at speed, as the crash scene covers a "very large area".
