A family near Talma is grieving the loss of three children today, October 30, while another family is hoping their child can recover from serious injuries sustained in an early Tuesday morning crash involving four elementary-aged school children who were on their way to school. "You're supposed to get on the bus stop and be safe", Ingle said.

The investigation further revealed that in 2013, Shepherd had been ticketed and charged with excessive speeding on a highway traveling at 85 miles per hour in a 70 miles per hour zone.

Police arrested Shepherd on Tuesday afternoon after they said she failed to come to a halt while the bus was stopped. She was released on a $15,000 bond, according to Jail Commander Catherine Collins, and is scheduled to make her first court appearance November 13. If found guilty, she could face up to 18 years in prison, reported ABC 57.

Alyssa Shepherd, 24, of Rochester, was charged with reckless homicide and passing a school bus, authorities said.

It happened around 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30, in the 4600 block of State Road 25 near Rochester.

WXIN reports the bus extended it's "STOP" arm, but a truck driving the opposite direction hit the children.

Three children were killed in a crash while waiting for a school bus in Fulton County, Indiana Tuesday morning.

Elgin Ingle told CNN affiliate WRTV that his niece, Alivia Stahl, acted more like a mother than a sister in protecting 6-year-old Xzavier and Mason Ingle.

ISP Sgt. Tony Slocum said the accident scene was tough for first responders to deal with.

An 11-year-old boy, Maverik Lowe, suffered multiple broken bones and was flown to a local hospital. Alivia, Mason and Xzavier were all killed.
