Something went wrong.
Three children from the same family were struck and killed by a pickup truck at a school bus stop in northern Indiana Tuesday morning. Another child was also injured.
Six-year-old twin boys, Xzavier & Mason Ingle, and their sister Alivia Stahl, 9, were hit while boarding the school bus near 4600 N. State Road 25 in Rochester, Ind. That’s about 50 miles south of South Bend.
An 11-year-old boy survived the accident but was badly injured. He was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital. Police say he had a couple of broken bones but was conscious.
The pickup truck was traveling in the opposite direction when it struck the students. Police say the “stop” arm on the bus was out at the time.
The 24-year-old pickup driver is being questioned by state police. They say alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the accident.
