Church bus involved in deadly crash was not registered

Officials have confirmed with Local 8 News that the church bus that crashed on I-40 in early October wasn't registered with the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol told us no registration means there's no means of knowing whether the bus was inspected this past year.

The accident killed six church members headed back to Statesville, North Carolina. A person in a tractor trailer and another in an SUV were also killed.

The crash is still under investigation by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
