LOWELL, Ind. (The Daily Journal) — Eighteen passengers on a bus owned by a Herscher church escaped before a fire engulfed the vehicle on Interstate 65 in Indiana early Saturday morning.
The bus is owned by Herscher Christian Church in Herscher, according to Indiana State Police.
According to a preliminary investigation, there were two chaperones and 16 teenagers on the bus traveling southbound on I-65 three miles north of Lowell at mile marker 243 at approximately 12:54 a.m. when the right rear tire failed.

The driver, Sue A. Stevenson, 47 of Cabrey, Ill., said she saw sparks coming from the tire.
As Stevenson pulled the bus over onto the right shoulder, the right rear tire caught fire.
All occupants were able to get off the bus as the fire quickly spread through the rear of the bus; within minutes the bus was fully engulfed.
The occupants were transported to an establishment at the Lowell exit where they were able to make arrangements to get home.
Southbound I-65 lanes in this area were closed for approximately two hours for extinguishing the fire, clean-up, and removal of the bus.
