The three children who died at the scene were from the same family - two twin six-year-old boys and their nine-year-old sister.

Slocum calls the accident a "terrible tragedy".

Police are interviewing a woman who was driving the vehicle involved.

The state police initially tweeted about the crash shortly before 9 a.m. Tuesday, saying the agency was "investigating a fatal crash in Fulton County".

A GoFundMe has been set up for Xzavier, Mason and Alivia's family and Maverik and his family. A preliminary investigation found that the school bus driver, Robert Reid, 46, was northbound on State Road 25, according to police.

An 11-year-old boy who isn't a relative was also struck and suffered multiple broken bones. The driver that hit the children was Alyssa Shepherd, 24, of Rochester.

Police told WNDU the stop-arm was out at the time of the crash, and the vehicle that hit the children was headed in the opposite direction. She said her son was hit in the past while pulling into the driveway. He was expected to undergo surgery Tuesday afternoon. Three were killed, and one was seriously injured and airlifted to a hospital in Fort Wayne.

"We all have a responsibility to share the roadway and we're all responsible for making sure our children get to and from school safely".
