Indiana woman’s trial for 3 bus stop deaths gets underway

Testimony is underway in the trial of a northern Indiana woman who allegedly killed three children by striking them with a pickup truck as they crossed a two-lane state highway to board a school bus.

Twenty-four-year-old Alyssa Shepherd faces three counts of reckless homicide and other charges in the Oct. 30, 2018, crash in Rochester, about 100 miles north of Indianapolis.

Her trial began Wednesday, a day after jurors were chosen in Fulton County. The first person testifying was the mother of 6-year-old twin brothers Xzavier and Mason Ingle, and their 9-year-old sister, Alivia Stahl.

All three died in the crash, which also badly injured a fourth child.

WSBT-TV reported Brittany Stahl described hearing screams and then running to her fatally injured children at the crash scene.
