Charter bus carrying students from Texas plunges into Alabama ravine

Driver killed Texas students hurt in Disney trip bus plunge

Another bus carrying the majority of the students immediately turned around to render aid.

Outside their high school, still closed for spring break, police were stationed at every entrance and no one was available to speak.

The bus was one of two carrying the school band and chaperones back from a band competition at Disney World in Florida.

"The bus came to rest on one side down in the ravine".

Officials confirm the driver was killed in the crash. "Thank God they were alive but (they) had to take them on (a) helicopter", he said in an interview conducted by instant messages. The agency's records don't indicate fault.

Local authorities confirmed Tuesday that one person was killed, and dozens more injured in a school-chartered bus accident in the US state of Alabama.

State Trooper also says City Hope Church in Malbis will be a meeting point for parents and students.

Many others were injured in the Tuesday morning crash near the Alabama-Florida line on Interstate 10.

At least 45 band members and adults from the Channelview High School Falcon Band from northeast Houston were on the bus, returning from a trip to Disney World in Orlando.

The extent of the injuries is not known, but the Baldwin County Coroner's Office told CNN it is responding to the scene.

The Court agreed to Karti's demand for medicines and spectacle but rejected his demand to provide him with home cook food. It later revised the figure to $1 million (about Rs 6.50 crore at the current exchange rate and Rs 4.50 crore in 2007).

The cause of the crash is yet to be released.

First Class Tours, which owns the vehicle involved in the accident pledged their "assistance in cooperating with local authorities in the investigation".

"Everybody is being transferred to a hospital to at least be checked out", said Elliott. Our prayers are with the injured and their families at this time. The bus struck a bridge support when it landed in the ravine, and inspectors need to make sure the bridge is sound before reopening the interstate, he said.

Injured passengers were taken to several different hospitals in Baldwin County, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida.

The crash was called into law enforcement at around 5:30 a.m., the Houston Chronicle reported.

According to Caligone's Facebook page, the Texas native worked as a tour bus operator for First Class Tours and Houston Baptist University.

Baldwin County Sheriff Huey Hoss Mack confirmed the death Tuesday morning while talking to new reporters. Local news media put the number at 12 to 20.

Baldwin County commissioner Christ Elliott said first responders "are having to rappel down" to access the crash site.

According to Alabama State Troopers the person that died was the driver of the bus.
