INDIANAPOLIS (WHAS11) – Investigators trying to determine what caused a deadly Indianapolis bus crash last month may not have many records to check.
The bus owned by Colonial Hills Baptist Church was inspected in 2010 but there’s no public record showing it was inspected after that.
Federal law allows such buses to be inspected by private companies and does not require owners to submit proof of inspections.
The crash happened on Interstate 65 as the bus returned from a church camp.
The driver told police the brakes failed.
A youth pastor, his pregnant wife and a chaperone died while dozens were injured.
