Tennessee: Eight Die As Bus And Truck Collide
Eight people have been killed after a bus collided with a car and a truck and then overturned on a Tennessee motorway.
The accident happened after a tyre blew on the church bus which then crossed the road and hit oncoming traffic on Interstate 40 in Jefferson County, authorities said.
The bus clipped an oncoming vehicle and struck the truck, which burst into flames.
At least 14 people were hurt in the accident which shut down Interstate 40.
Transport official Dalya Qualls said the bus was travelling in north-east Tennessee when it crossed the central reservation and struck the other two vehicles.
An emergency response official told WBIR-TV that 20 ambulances and five helicopters responded to the accident.
