FULTON COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) -A team from the National Transportation Safety Board will be investigating the crash in which three siblings were struck and killed by a pick-up truck on Tuesday.

According to WNDU, three siblings were killed after attempting to board a school bus. The children who died are 6-year-old twin boys Xzavier Ingle and Mason Ingle, and their 9-year-old sister, Alivia Stahl. A fourth child was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital in serious condition. He is not related to the other children.

The driver of the truck, Alyssa Shepherd, 24, of rural Rochester, was charged with three counts of reckless homicide and one count of passing a school bus with its safety arm extended and causing injury. She has since bonded out of jail.

The NTSB’s “Go Team” is in charge of the investigation. The team is comprised of technical specialists who are in charge of investigating the accident, according to the NTSB website. The team can number from three or four to more than a dozen specialists.
