(Newser) – Three people are dead after a bus carrying teens from a church camp crashed in Indianapolis this afternoon. Among those killed were a husband and wife, the Indianapolis Star reports. The bus was carrying 40 members of the Colonial Hill Baptist Church back from camp, reports the AP. Both kids and adults were injured in the crash, some critically, reports the Star, and they are now being taken to hospital via ambulance and helicopter. Officials say the bus overturned while attempting a "high speed" turn. The accident also caused a diesel fuel spill, which is being cleaned up.
