INDIANAPOLIS -

A bus carrying teens coming home from a church camp crashed Saturday on a busy Indianapolis thoroughfare, killing three people and sending others to hospitals, officials said.
    
An Indiana Department of Transportation camera showed the bus overturned on its side near an Interstate 465 overpass. The Indianapolis Fire Department said crews had to free five people who were trapped inside after the crash Saturday afternoon. Four good Samaritans helped before first responders could arrive, including one man who helped pull the driver out, the agency said.
    
The bus was carrying 40 passengers who are members of Colonial Hill Baptist Church in Indianapolis and were returning from a summer camp. The Fire Department said those injured included children and adults.
    
Indianapolis Fire Department spokesman Lt. Rita Burris confirmed that three people died, though she did not provide any details on the victims, including whether they were children or adults. She said survivors were being taken to area hospitals. Some of the victims were taken from the scene by helicopter.
    
Details about how the crash happened were not immediately available.
    
Roads near the scene were closed, and authorities were urging people to use caution in the area. A hazardous materials crew was in the area cleaning up diesel fuel that spilled in the crash.
    
Parents of passengers were asked to go to the church for information.
