At least eight people, including six members of a church group, have been confirmed killed in a bus accident in Tennessee.

At least eight people, including six members of a church group, have been confirmed killed in a bus accident in Tennessee. In this case, the bus was carrying a group of church members back home from a three-day festival.

According to official reports, the bus accident is believed to have been the result of tire blowout. The bus veered across the highway, crashing into a SUV and a tractor-trailer. The impact of the accident was devastating, and eight people succumbed to their injuries. At least 14 people on the bus were hurt, and several of these people are believed to be in critical condition.

The eight people who died in the accident include the driver of the bus and his wife. Both were members of the Front Street Baptist Church. Several church members were passengers on the bus. Most of the victims have already been identified. Identification proved to be a challenge because the bus exploded into flames soon after the accident, rendering many of the bodies unrecognizable.

The National Transportation Safety Board has already announced that it will not be sending any investigators to the scene of the accident. This is rare for the federal agency, which often sends its investigators very quickly to the scene of a fatal accident. However, as a result of the government shutdown, the Board has confirmed that its investigators have been furloughed, and no investigators will be sent to this investigation.

Investigations are likely to be very challenging in this case. This was not a public vehicle, but a church vehicle, which means that it is not under any obligation to comply with record-keeping regulations, and other regulations, that apply to commercial buses and charter vehicles. However, these church buses are required to maintain their buses in a properly functioning state. All repairs that are necessary must be conducted, and all parts must be in a safe condition. However, church buses are not required to maintain any records to prove that inspections, safety checks and other repair work has been performed on the buses.
