NC church mourns fiery bus crash that killed 8
MITCH WEISSAssociated Press
DANDRIDGE, Tenn. — After thefiery crash of a church bus in Tennessee,Daniel Morrison knew a phone callwould be coming.His parents were among a group of seniors from a North Carolina churchwho had eagerly awaited their big annu-al outing, a trip to a three-day festivalin Gatlinburg, Tenn., featuring gospelsingers and speakers.But on the way back Wednesday toStatesville in North Carolina, the churchbus carrying the members blew a tire,veered across a highway median andcrashed into a sport utility vehicle andtractor-trailer, police said.All told, the wreck on Interstate 40 innortheastern Tennessee killed eight peo-ple, leaving the bus on its side next tothe tractor-trailer, the wreckage extend-ing across two lanes of traffic and partlyinto the median. Fourteen others werehurt, two in critical condition.When Morrison was told about thecrash, he feared the worst.Then a pastor at the Front StreetBaptist Church called late at night andbroke the devastating news: His parents,Randy and Barbara Morrison, both 66and married for nearly 50 years, weredead.His father, who had once workedfor a trucking company and his mother,once a school teacher, were gone.“I’m still processing it,” said DanielMorrison, one of the couple’s five chil-dren, pausing to shake his head. He saidboth had looked forward to the trip,having devoted so much to their church.Morrison said his parents werealways there for him - especially afterhis wife Monica died in December of abrain aneurysm. His parents stayed longhours at his house, helping him raise his2-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter.“You expect things to happen - youdon’t expect them to happen in oneyear,” he said. “I know the Lord has areason for everything, but I don’t knowwhat it is yet.”The Tennessee Highway Patrol onThursday afternoon identified seven of the eight people killed.Six of the dead were members of the Statesville church, including RandyMorrison, who police said was drivingthe bus, and his wife, Barbara.Other victims from the church are95-year-old Cloyce Matheny, 69-year-old Brenda Smith, 62-year-old MarshaMcLelland and 73-year-old John Wright.All were from Statesville except Wright,from Mocksville, N.C.The Highway Patrol says the bus,once the tire ruptured, cross the medianinto oncoming traffic. The tractor-trailercaught fire.One person in the sport utility vehi-cle, Trent Roberts, 24, of Knoxville,was killed.The driver of the tractor-trailer alsowas killed but has not yet been identi-fied.And the partial government shut-down has affected the investigation.The National Transportation SafetyBoard isn’t sending investigators toTennessee to probe the deadly crash -even though it’s the type of accidentthe agency would typically look into.Nearly all of the board’s 400 employeeshave been furloughed because of theshutdown, including accident investiga-tors.
