Senior members of the Young at Heart Ministry of Front Street Baptist Church in Statesville, NC were involved in a terrible accident which took eight lives and injured fourteen others.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says it could take a couple of days before troopers release the names of the eight people who died in a fiery bus crash because some victims were burned and they may have to use dental records to identify the body.

The group had attended the annual Fall Jubilee in Gatlinburg, Tenn., an event featuring gospel singers and speakers, and they were on their way back home.

But on the way back the bus blew a tire, veered across a highway median and crashed into a sport utility vehicle and tractor-trailer in a fiery wreck.

Last night church members were waiting for more details and so far none of the victims have been identified.

Our prayers are with family and friends.
