Officials are confirming the deaths of eight people following a horrific traffic accident in Jefferson County, Tennessee.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol says the accident on I-40 involved a Baptist church bus, a tractor trailer and an SUV. A tire on the bus apparently blew, causing it to cross the median, leading to the collision.
Six of the dead are said to be from the bus which was from Statesville, North Carolina. The Highway Patrol reports that one person each was killed from the SUV and the tractor-trailer.
