A Tennessee pastor who lost control of and crashed a church bus in which he was transporting multiple teenagers over the weekend, is now thanking God after they all walked away from the wreck alive.
"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 News 4 in an interview. "We're all here. We're all safe. So, praise the Lord."
Bus - People - Clark - Teenagers - Dixie
The bus, which was carrying 12 people including Clark and eight teenagers, was borrowed from Dixie Hills Baptist Church in Bolivar. The Tennessee Highway Patrol told News Channel 9 that it overturned on State Route 840 and Highway 100 at around 6 p.m. Saturday during rain.
Clark said the group was heading home from an event in Chattanooga when a gust of wind hit the vehicle on I-840 West near Highway 100 in Williamson County.
Gust - Wind - Hit - Lots - Rain
"Right as we were trying to slow down, a big gust of wind [hit] and started pushing us. Rain, lots of rain came. It caused us to hydroplane as we tried to correct from the wind and that's when all the sliding started," Clark said.
The wind caused the bus to roll into a median and Clark was forced to fight his way out of the bus where luggage and an ice chest almost trapped him.
