A Winchester couple was involved in the high-profile crash of Lexington church bus that collided with a pick-up truck while en route to Florida on Sunday.
An administrator of Centenary United Methodist Church in Lexington confirmed this morning that Winchester resident Lester Combs was driving the bus and his wife, Diana, sustained injuries as a passenger.
The bus was part of a three-bus caravan carrying 70 middle school and high school students to church camp in Panama City, Fla. Police said a truck veered into the southbound lane and into the path of one the buses near Dothan, Ala.
The bus broadsided the passenger side of the pickup, according to reports. The accident remains under investigation, but police said the pickup may have hydroplaned.
