An Indianapolis church youth pastor, his pregnant wife and another church member were killed when a church bus overturned with just a mile to go in a return trip from a Michigan summer camp on Saturday.
The congregation of Colonial Hills Baptist Church is mourning those deaths after the bus crashed with 37 people on board. Youth pastor Chad Phelps, his pregnant piano-teacher wife, Courtney, and chaperone Tonya Weindorf were killed. Dozens of others were injured in the crash, which happened Saturday.
A 68-year-old congregation member who was driving the church-owned bus, told police that its brakes
failed before the bus hit a raised concrete median and flipped on its side.
