Three children were struck by a vehicle and killed at an IN school bus stop on Tuesday, and the suspected driver, Alyssa L. Shepherd, was arrested, state police said.

According to IN law, vehicles must stop upon meeting, from either direction, a school bus that is stopped for loading or unloading children and displays or has recently displayed a stop signal arm.

The children were crossing State Route 25 to get to their yellow school bus when they were run over about 7:15 a.m.in front of the Meiser mobile home park where they lived.

According to authorities, the preliminary crash investigation revealed that 46-year-old Robert Reid, of Claypool, was driving a 2015 Thomas school bus, northbound on State Road 25. 'All the prayers we can get, that's all you can ask for. That child is an 11-year-old boy.

All three siblings died at the scene. The 6-year-olds and their sister "attended Mentone Elementary School".

Three students, who were from the same family, were killed, the fourth was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital, Indiana State police told RTV6.

"We would like to thank those who have prayed for our family and the families of those involved in yesterday's tragedy".

Of course, the OnePlus 6T - which will be presented earlier than planned to avoid Apple - will rest primarily on its functions. Since there is no visible rear-facing fingerprint reader, it will obviously be present inside the display of the OnePlus 6T .

"The two boys were a life spark", Ingle told WRTV.

He said that the deaths happened in an area that had prompted complaints from parents because the students had to walk across a busy road.

"It's awful that this happened", Ingle said. Their names and ages have not been released. "We also had counselors and clergy available for anyone who desired additional support and we will continue to provide counselors as needed", the statement read.

Slocum told the media gathered at the scene that the school bus driver had followed all necessary protocol. Tony Slocum calls the accident a "terrible tragedy".

Shepherd faces three felony charges of reckless homicide and a misdemeanor of passing a school bus with the arm extended.

"Other committee members will include school transportation officials, bus drivers and the president of the Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation Board of School Trustees".
