Children Struck And Killed, 1 Injured While Boarding School Bus In Indiana

Xzavier Ingle, 6, Mason Ingle, 6, and Alivia Stahl, 9, all siblings, died after being hit.

Shepherd's crumpled pickup truck could be seen where the wreck happened for several hours after it happened.

"To her I say, way to be a badass, man".

The dead children's uncle Elgin Ingle told Fox 59 that his brother is distraught by the tragedy. You can't bring back the kids'.

A Tippecanoe Valley School Corp. bus had stopped and lowered its stop arm around 7 a.m. on the road near Rochester just before a northbound pickup truck slammed into the children as they crossed the southbound lane, Indiana State Police Sgt. Alyssa Shepherd, 24, driving in a 2017 Toyota Tacoma, struck and killed the children, authorities said.

"Troopers and first responders don't do a lot of crying at scenes like this but today there were some tears shed", Slocum said.

Slocum says three of the children died at the scene and the fourth was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital. "Everybody knows buses stop at this time of day", Ingle said.

Shepherd was arrested at her workplace in Rochester on October 30 at around 4 p.m. and was released later Tuesday on a $15,000 bond.

She was released from the Fulton County Jail Tuesday evening on a $15,000 bond, according to ABC News. It is not clear if she has legal representation at this time.

A woman has been charged after three young siblings were struck and killed as they tried to board a school bus.

Two six-year-old twin boys and their nine-year-old sister were killed. There's nothing they could do to stop it from happening.

Alivia, he recalled, showed bravery and compassion throughout her short life. There's no stopping Alivia.

"Hopefully, [the crash] has some kind of positive outcome to get this slowed down here because this is insane", she said. "She's helpful. She is attentive to other people's needs".

"Obviously, it's a very delicate situation when you're dealing with elementary-aged children", he said.

Ingle, like the rest of his family, is navigating how to help the parents through this tragedy while he grieves. "All the prayers we can get, that's all you can ask for". He was taken to the hospital in critical condition, and his family said Wednesday he is now in "stable" condition.
