Survivors of Indianapolis bus crash continue to recover

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The most seriously injured survivor of an Indianapolis bus crash is showing signs of improvement.

The teenager has been moved out of an intensive care unit. The bus crashed Saturday after heading home from a trip to a Michigan summer camp.

It was just a mile from the church when it hit a raised concrete median and flipped on its side. The church's youth pastor, his pregnant wife and a camper's mother died.

"Some of the teenagers are hurting pretty badly, and you could see that in their faces.," said Greg Ballard, mayor of Indianapolis. "There are a lot of adults in there, helping them. Even though they are shook up, they're helping them. It seems to be a good...good group in there helping each other out."

Police are still trying to figure out why the bus crashed. The driver claims the brakes failed.
