IN school district moves bus stop after crash kills 3 siblings

Sgt. Tony Slocum says four children were preparing to board a Tippecanoe Valley School Corp. bus about 7 a.m. Tuesday when they were hit by the pickup truck headed in the opposite direction near Rochester, about 100 miles north of Indianapolis.

Two twin boys, 6-year-olds Xzavier and Mason Ingle, and their sister, 9-year-old Alivia Stahl, were killed.

Xzavier, Mason and Alivia died at the scene.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support the Ingle family.

The bus driver told police he thought Shepherd's truck was a good distance away and waved the children across the highway. She has been released on $15,000 bond and has not yet entered a plea.

He told ABC7: 'I haven't seen first responders and troopers cry in a long time.

The great-aunt of the three siblings who were killed, Pamela Pugh, told the South Bend Tribune that she was stunned and shaken by their deaths.

'When the children's father had to make identification of his children, that was just gut-wrenching. The family said it saved her life.

"This school has been warned, this has been an issue, we have said this before", the victim's uncle told WNDU.

Conley said he is also establishing and co-chairing a transportation safety review committee to examine all school bus stops in the district to "ensure our children are transported safely".

"Alivia, my niece, she was the kindest child you'll ever meet. She chose to shield her brothers with that split second".

Ingle said there was no reason the children should have been taken from the family, and wants other drivers to hear this message: "Pay attention".

An Indiana woman has been arrested for her alleged involvement in a vehicle crash that killed three children and wounded an 11-year-old boy, according to police.

The boy was conscious and speaking to emergency workers before he was airlifted to hospital, police said.

Their mother, Ingle said, ran to them immediately after the accident Tuesday morning.
