    Six killed as bus plunges from overpass

    Six killed as bus plunges from overpass

    Like most members of his college baseball team, A.J. Ramthun was sleeping when something jolted him awake -- the team's charter bus striking a wall on the side of an overpass.

    Then, he looked out his window and "saw the road coming up after me," he said.

    The charter bus, carrying 35 people -- Ramthun and his Bluffton University teammates -- to Florida, had toppled off the overpass and slammed into Interstate 75 just outside downtown Atlanta. (Watch the mangled wreckage of the bus righted on the highway Video)

    Six people were killed. The other 29 were injured, six seriously.

    Bluffton identified the players who died as sophomore infielder David Betts of Bryan, Ohio; freshman third and first baseman Scott Harmon of Lima, Ohio; freshman pitcher Cody Holp of Arcanum, Ohio; and sophomore outfielder Tyler Williams, also of Lima.

    Also killed were the bus driver, Jerome Niemeyer, and his wife, Jean, both of Columbus Grove, Ohio....

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.
