Elgin Ingle has to be strong for his family, especially his little brother who lost three children Tuesday morning when they were struck and killed was they crossed the street to board their school bus.

The fourth child, 11-year-old Maveri Lowe, was airlifted to a hospital in Fort Wayne.

ISP allege Shepherd didn't come to a stop on S.R. 25 when the bus was stopped, killing three children and leaving another in critical condition. He was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital. That child is an 11-year-old boy.

The four kids were crossing the two-lane road to get on a Tippecanoe Valley School Corp. bus about 7 a.m. when they were hit by the vehicle in Rochester, about 100 miles from Indianapolis.

"If you're following a school bus you have to anticipate it's gonna stop", said State Police Sgt.

Los Angeles used nine pitchers to eke out a 3-2 victory in Game 3, which lasted a record 7 hours, 20 minutes. And the Red Sox blew it open with five runs in the ninth against three Dodgers relievers.

The driver of the pickup truck, Alyssa Shepherd, 24, taken into custody Tuesday afternoon and charged with three counts of reckless homicide, and one misdemeanor count of disregarding a stop sign and causing injury, officials told ABC News.

Shepherd was being held at the Fulton County Jail with a surety bond of $15,000. "You're supposed to get on the bus stop and be safe", Ingle said.

Lutheran EMS, the Fulton County Coroner's Office, Rochester Fire Department, Mentone Fire Department, Rochester School Corporation and the Fulton County Sheriff's Department assisted at the scene.

The students attended a school in the Tippecanoe Valley School District.

We are awaiting to learn more confirmed details but wish to ask the community to come together to pray for the families, our students and our staff. "There are no words", she said. "Words can not express the depth of sorrow Janet and I feel, which only pales in comparison to what family, friends, teachers, classmates and community are feeling right now".
