INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A ‘freak accident’ outside an Indiana elementary school led to the death of an adult and two children being rushed to a nearby hospital.

According to FOX 59, authorities with the school district say 25 students were on a stationary bus when the bus suddenly lurched forward outside Amy Beverland Elementary School.
