Indiana Natives in Atlanta Bus Accident

BLUFFTON, Ohio (AP) -- Three of the passengers on a bus that plunged off an Atlanta highway ramp this morning attended high school in Indiana.

The bus was carrying the baseball team from Bluffton University, a small religious school in Bluffton, Ohio.

Six people were killed in the accident, including four players, and more than 20 people are injured.

The principal of South Adams High School in Berne, Indiana, says three of the students on the bus were former baseball players at the school.

Brent Lehman says Tyler Sprunger, Will Grandlinard and Lucas Baumgartner all were players at the school in the city about 30 miles south of Fort Wayne.

Sprunger graduated in 2004, and Grandlinard and Baumgartner graduated in 2006.
