Church van accident kills one and injures 11

December 16, 2002

Americus - Only one of the 12 people in that fatal church van crash in Americus remains in the hospital tonight. The crash happened on Highway 49 about 3 miles north of Americus Saturday night.

16 year-old Katrina English of Ideal was killed. The driver, 30 year old Angela Wells, says a strong gust of wind caused her to lose control of the House of God's Miracles Temple bus. The bus rolled several times and two passengers, who weren't wearing their seat belts, were ejected.

29 year-old Rhoda Meadows is still hospitalized and is expected to recover. All 10 other church members had minor injuries. Charges are pending.
