In a Facebook post, the Indiana Department of Transportation said Indiana 64 was closed two miles west of Oakland City due to the crash. The school bus involved in the incident was transporting students affiliated with several East Gibson School Corporation schools, according to superintendent James Wilson.

Ringle said the Gibson County Sheriff's Office was on scene investigating the crash, and that ISP would not be releasing additional information about the incident at this time.
