Ambulance company offering free transport for bus wreck victims

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The ambulance company 'Lifeguard' is offering to transport anyone hurt in the last week's church bus crash, back to North Carolina, for free.

UT Medical Center treated 14 people when the bus blew a tire, crossed the median, hitting a tractor trailer and an SUV.

Six people in the bus, the truck driver and a passenger
in the SUV were killed.

Now "Lifeguard" is working to arrange transportation for the remaining six patients, so they can continue their rehab in their hometowns.
