At least one person was killed when a bus carrying Houston-area band students drove into a 50-foot ravine in Baldwin County, Alabama, on Tuesday morning, Sheriff Huey Hoss Mack said.
The crash and rescue effort closed down Interstate 10 in both directions near the Florida state line. "The bus came to rest on one side down in the ravine. Those had to either be brought up by ropes or rappelling individuals from the fire department during the rescue operation. Some were carried out by either deputies or other law enforcement," the sheriff said, explaining the depth of the ravine complicated rescue efforts.
