Charter bus carrying Houston high school students crashes in Alabama

The injured were rushed by medivac and ambulance to several hospitals to be treated for their injuries, Mack said.

Multiple rescue units responded Tuesday morning to a crash on I-10 eastbound near mile marker 57, Mobile Fire and Rescue said on social media.

Officials say the bus was returning to Houston from a school trip to Disney World.

Initial reports have suggested 52 people were on the bus.

The crash shut down I-10 in both directions.

The bus struck a bridge support when it landed in the ravine, and inspectors need to make sure the bridge is sound before reopening the interstate, Alabama State Trooper Capt. John Malone said.

Houston-based First Class Tours confirmed that the bus was operated by the company.

First responders had to use ropes to rappel down the ravine to reach the injured and then use equipment to cut out them out. One patient remains critical, he said, and five are in serious condition.

Footage of the wreckage shows the crumpled bus on its side, far below the pavement. Another bus carrying students was ahead of the bus that crashed at the time. They were traveling on a school trip to Disney World in Florida, we're told. He said he did not know how many passengers were injured, but said they were "numerous".

The Channelview Independent School District said 40 students and six adults from the school were on board.

The bus had been due to take the children back home to Channelview, Texas, in Houston. That bus stopped after realizing what happened, but did not allow the students to get off, and eventually continued on to Channelview, a Houston suburb of about 38,000.

Harry Caligone was identified as the charter bus driver who died Tuesday when the bus went off an Alabama highway and plunged into a ravine.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency is investigating and more information will be provided as it becomes available.

One image posted on the band's Facebook page hours before the crash showed a large group posing outside Disney World.

"We are deeply saddened for this loss", First Class Tours said in a statement.
