At least 6 dead in Chattanooga, Tennessee, school bus crash

At least six children were killed in a school bus crash in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Monday, a spokeswoman for the Hamilton County District Attorney’s Office said.
Spokeswoman Melydia Clewell said at least five children died on the scene, and one died at a hospital.
The bus was carrying 35 children ranging in age from kindergarten to fifth grade, according to Assistant Chattanooga Police Chief Tracy Arnold.
The bus appears to have slammed into a tree, which split it apart.
At least 23 people were transported to local hospitals after the single-vehicle crash.
Chattanooga Police Chief Fred Fletcher said the bus was carrying students from Woodmore Elementary on Tally Road when it crashed, CNN-affiliate WDEF reported.
“A bus crash involving schoolchildren is every public safety professional’s worst nightmare but it’s also the thing that we all train for,” Fletcher said, according to CNN-affiliate WTVC.
