(Apache County, Arizona August 29, 2022)–On early Sunday morning, a 17-year-old girl was tragically killed and six others were injured after a semi-truck rear ended a school shuttle carrying 23 people.
According to the State Troopers, Kiarra Alma Gordon, a student at Holbrook Indian School, died in the crash, which occurred near Sanders, AZ on I-40 around 9:30 a.m. The school shuttle was pushed into a van after it was rear ended by the semi-truck, which created a three vehicle pileup.
