Youth Pastor, Wife, And Chaperone Died In Indianapolis Bus Crash

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An Indianapolis church leader says the youth pastor and his pregnant wife are among the three people who died in Saturday's bus crash.

Deacon Jeff Leffew said at a news conference outside of Colonial Hills Baptist Church on Sunday morning that youth pastor Chad Phelps and his wife, Courtney Phelps, died in the accident.

He said Chad Phelps is the son of the church's main pastor, Charles Phelps. Courtney Phelps was pregnant and due next month.

The third person who died was Tonya Weindorf, a mother of five who was a chaperone on the trip to the northern Michigan youth camp.

Dozens were injured in the accident, in which a bus struck a retaining wall and flipped on its side. The Phelps' 2-year-old son has been released from the hospital.
