Licking County Bus Crash: 6 killed and 18 injured on I-70


5 vehicles, including a charter bus and semi, were involved in a fiery crash Tuesday morning in Licking County.

Six people are now confirmed to be dead after a charter bus carrying students from a high school was rear-ended by a semi-truck on Interstate 70 in Licking County, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Eighteen others were reported injured in the crash.

The victims were identified as 18-year-old John Mosely, 18-year-old Jeffery Worrell, 15-year-old Katelyn Owens, 56-year-old Dave Kennat, 39-year-old Kristy Gaynor and 45-year-old Shannon Wigfield.

The three teens killed in the crash were on the bus, while the three adults were inside of a passenger vehicle.

The charter bus was transporting students from the Tuscarawas Valley Local School District in eastern Ohio.

There were a total of 57 people on board.

The bus was headed to an Ohio School Boards Association conference in Columbus, Superintendent Derek Varansky said.

The conference was canceled after organizers learned of the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
