Bus crash kills six
The week's news at a glance.
A bus carrying 33 members of a small Ohio colleges baseball team plunged off an Atlanta overpass last week, killing four team members as well as the bus driver and his wife. Bluffton University students David Betts, Cody Holp, Scott Harmon, and Tyler Williams died from injuries suffered when the bus fell 30 feet onto a highway in Atlanta. Police theorize that driver Jerome Niemeyer, moving eastbound along route I-75, inadvertently exited the highway via a left-hand exit lane and plowed through an overpass guardrail. One surviving player reported waking from a nap to hear Niemeyers wife, Jean, screaming, Its not the highway!
