Disney charter bus carrying students crashes into ravine 1 dead many injured

At 5:33 a.m., the tour bus, which was headed west on Interstate 10 toward Houston, careened near the highway median and ended up in a 50-foot ravine, Lt. Joe Piggott of the Alabama Highway Patrol said in a statement.

Mack did not identify the person killed but said several injured people were taken to 10 hospitals in Baldwin County, the Alabama cities of Mobile, Daphne and Fairhope, and Pensacola, Florida.

A sheriff says about 45 people were on board a bus that was carrying Texas high school students home from a Disney World trip when it plunged into a ravine near the Alabama-Florida line, killing one.

The crash occurred about 20 miles east of Mobile, Alabama at around 6am.

The bus crash happened at around 6am on Tuesday morning on Interstate 10 near the Alabama and Florida state line. "The fire department and officers are having to rappel down into the area to get into it". "Some were carried out by either deputies or other law enforcement", the sheriff said, explaining the depth of the ravine complicated rescue efforts.

Mike Burke from Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, Florida, said that hospital received approximately 20 patients from the accident.

Baldwin County Sheriff's Office Major Anthony Lowery said the bus plunged off Interstate 10 into a deep ravine Tuesday morning, and multiple helicopters are responding.
