FULTON COUNTY, Ind. (WGN) -- A woman stands trial Tuesday for killing three children as they crossed a northern Indiana road to board a school bus.
Alyssa Shepherd was driving a pickup truck before dawn Oct. 30, 2018 when she struck four children who were crossing a two-lane road to board a Tippecanoe Valley School Corp. bus near Rochester.
Six-year-old twin brothers Xzavier and Mason Ingle, and their 9-year-old sister, Alivia Stahl, were killed. Maverik Lowe, 11, survived the accident but was seriously injured.
Shepherd told police she saw red lights flashing, but didn't realize it was a school bus until the kids were in front of her.
