Charges Filed After This Morning's Fatal School Bus Accident

3 children fatally struck by vehicle while boarding school bus in Indiana

A bus remains at the scene where three schoolchildren were killed in Fulton County IN on Tuesday

The uncle of the three young siblings who were killed Tuesday morning after being hit by a vehicle at an IN bus stop said he isn't sure how the children's father will recover from their deaths. "I haven't seen troopers cry in a long time, but I saw that today".

Investigators say around 7:15 a.m. the children's Tippecanoe Valley school bus had its "STOP" arm out on North State Road 25 in Rochester. It is not clear if she has legal representation at this time.

The 11-year-old boy, who is not related to the other kids, suffered multiple broken bones.

"This school has been warned, this has been an issue, we have said this before", the victim's uncle told WNDU. That child, Maverik Lowe, was in critical condition at a Fort Wayne hospital and was undergoing surgery. We don't want another family to have to go through this'.

Shepherd was arrested at her workplace in Rochester on October 30 at around 4 p.m. and was released later Tuesday on a $15,000 bond.

Shepherd is being held on bond in the Fulton County Jail.

The National Transportation Safety Board sent a team to review the crash.

In a follow-up statement , the Saudi Arabian consulate described the pair as "students accompanying their brother in Washington". The lack of obvious trauma appeared to rule out a theory they may have jumped into the river from the George Washington Bridge.

Authorities do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

A neighbor, who declined to be identified, also told the station she had concerns about the stretch of roadway.

Shepherd, who is the mother to two young girls herself, works at the Faith Outreach Center in Rochester, Indiana where she has a role as the Children's director.

All three siblings died at the scene. "You're not suppose to be smacked by a auto going 60-miles-an-hour", said Ingle. "It shouldn't have happened".

The local school district, Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation, released a statement on Facebook on Tuesday morning. Tony Slocum. "And, if you're traveling in the early morning hours or mid to late evening hours, expect school buses to be out and when they activate that stop arm, you're gonna have to stop".

"Parents hope that when their kids are born they have the flawless child".
