ETNA, Ohio (AP) — A federal investigator looking into an Ohio bus crash that killed three students, two parents and a teacher with a high school band group has praised “good Samaritans” who rushed to the scene of the highway crash. National Transportation Safety Board Chair Jennifer Homendy said Wednesday that numerous police and fire departments responded to the scene shortly after the Tuesday crash. It occurred on westbound Interstate 70 in Licking County. It involved a charter bus carrying school band members and chaperones from the Tuscarawas Valley Local School District in eastern Ohio. They were headed to perform at an educational conference. Six people died and 18 were injured.
