Gospel Group MercyMe Involved in Fatal Auto Accident
The tour bus carrying gospel group MercyMe struck a car that veered into their path, killing two of the passengers on the car.
The american contemporary christian band MercyMe, founded out of Texas, was travelling through Fort Wayne, Indiana when a car apparently turned out in front of the band's tour bus. The tour bus was going through a green light when the car made its turn.
Two of the three passengers on board were killed, the driver is a woman 35-weeks pregnant and is in critical condition.
