    Colonial Hills Baptist Church is a very well-known church. They are located in a very busy area with heavy traffic. They are near the northern border of Marion County and the wealthy suburb of Carmel, Indiana. I have been given their tracts from time to time over the years and I had one acquaintance who attended there. Police seem to think that the brakes failed on the bus but they are going to test all that out. Most of the injured were sent to Methodist Hospital, the main emergency hospital for central Indiana.

    Accident report finally released

    http://www.wishtv.com/news/local/isp-release-report-on-july-bus-crash

    "Indiana State Police have released their report into the crash that killed three members of the Colonial Hills Baptist Church in July. Police say speed was a factor.

    Indiana State Police say the brakes were working when the bus slammed into the barrier wall at Interstate 465 and Keystone Avenue.

    The driver, Dennis Maurer, had said that the brakes failed coming off of the outer belt. State Police say Maurer did appear to brake and steer before the bus hit the wall, but he couldn't avoid contact.

    State Police say the bus was going too fast when it tried to turn onto Keystone from I-465.

    The bus was full of students and chaperones coming home from a week-long church camp."
