A bus taking a church group home to North Carolina blew a tire, veered across a highway median and crashed into a sport utility vehicle and tractor-trailer Wednesday in a fiery wreck that killed eight people, authorities said.
Oct. 2, 2013 Emergency workers respond to the crash involving a passenger bus, a tractor-trailer and an SUV near Dandridge, Tenn. In addition to the eight killed, 14 other people were hurt in the accident in northeastern Tennessee, including eight who were in critical condition. The bus was carrying members of the Front Street Baptist Church in Statesville, N.C., which is about 140 miles east of the crash site. Paul Efird/Knoxville News Sentinel via AP Buy Photo
