A majority of tho estimated 2i'- passengers scrambled out before Lhe fire got lo them. Three of the dead were badly burned. The others apparently were thrown from the bus. The bus driver, who last summer received an award for 15 years of safe driving, was among the dead. He svas Samuel Youroe. GO, of Murfrecsboro, Term. Twelve persons, including one ot the truck drivers, were treated at- n hospital. Six were rclearcd One was sent to a Nashville hospital in critical condition. Officers pieced together this account: The 40-passGnger bus, bound from Birmingham to Cincinnali, was passing a coal truck in the' fog when Ja southbound semi-lrntl- er truck 'loomed ahead, The bus whipped back toward, the right lane, hooked bumpers with the coal truck and then crashed almost heaclon into the tractor-trailer. The impact broke the bus loose from the coaT truck. The bus cii- rcened 75 yards further on and crashed to a plop upright in '-he gully, catching fire. The coal truck stopped, with its brakes locked, svlth one wheel off the shoulder of the road. Luther Jim Beasley, 30, truck driver for the Brindley & Son Coal Co,, Pulasld, who was not injured, said: • "The tractor-trailer was blowing his horn and signaling with his lights. He was going mighty slow, if not stopped, whan the bus hit him," The collision 'opened -a hole \ In tlie left side of the bus through which some of the passengers p s- caped, Others apparently used Iho emergency door at the rear. Four of the dead were identified in addition to Youree. They were; Charles H. Thompson, about 25, Cleveland, Ala.; Mrs, Billic Jean Holman, about 13, Brewton, Ala.; and Mr. anr!
