A Tennessee pastor has spoken out after he and 17 of his congregation survived a terrifying bus crash at the weekend. The group was returning home from a conference in Chattanooga when the accident occurred Saturday along Interstate 840 south of Nashville, which resulted in the bus leaving the carriageway and overturning. Though eight kids were sent to the hospital for treatment, no one was seriously injured.
"We were spared. Could've been a lot worse. Could've been a lot worse," Pastor Joshua Clark from Parrans Chapel Baptist in Bolivar told WSMV-TV. "We're all here. We're all safe. So, praise the Lord."
Clark recalled how the group was headed along the freeway when a sudden gust of wind and a dousing of heavy rain blew them off track and caused the bus to lose traction.
