PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (AP) — A documentary film that revisits a deadly 1958 school bus crash in eastern Kentucky will premiere this month in Floyd County.

"The Very Worst Thing" tells the story of the people whose lives were affected by the crash, which killed 27 people.

The bus was carrying 48 elementary and high school students on U.S. 23 near Prestonsburg when it careened 50 feet down a muddy embankment into the Big Sandy River.

The movie debuts Feb. 19 at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg. Box office manager Jill Reynolds-Williams said she expects it to be a standing-room-only crowd.
