Not much in details about the crash at this time. For some reason, the bus attempted to make a turn at high speed and flipped over.

The Indianapolis Fire Department says three people were killed when a bus carrying teens from a church camp crashed on a busy thoroughfare near Interstate 465.
The bus was carrying 40 passengers who are members of Colonial Hill Baptist Church and were returning from camp when the crash happened Saturday afternoon. Most of them were teenagers.

Sorry to hear that. Prayers that the death toll doesn't rise for them.

The update states the driver said the brakes went out. I still can't figure out why he attempted to make a 90 degree turn if the brakes went out. Logic tells me you keep moving forward and coast to a stop.
