Child killed when football team's bus crashes in Arkansas

State police confirmed the bus was carrying a youth football team from Memphis.

"When troopers arrived at the scene, numerous children were already off of the bus", Sadler said.

Maxson said some of the children suffered injuries to the brain or other internal organs, while others suffered cuts and broken bones.

Little Rock-based Arkansas Children's Hospital, which is approximately 25 miles from the site of the crash, received 25 injured children, all of whom are now listed as stable. The driver of the vehicle is still alive and is being questioned by police. The bus was carrying the Orange Mound Youth League football team, which had attended an All-Star game in Dallas over the weekend. It gave no age for Kameron, but it said he was a third-grader at Aspire Coleman Elementary School in Memphis.

Orange Mound is a historically black neighbourhood in southeast Memphis that comes together around its youth football teams, where kids train to be part of the highly competitive Melrose High School squad.

The bus was returning to Memphis Tennessee from a championship game in Dallas Texas when it crashed west of Benton Arkansas the state police said

Authorities haven't talked about the cause of the crash that happened under the cloak of darkness. He said the four remaining children were stable and expected to fully recover from their injuries. Two were airlifted, Sadler said.

Authorities on scene say more than 20 people were rushed to hospitals in the area.

More information will be reported as it is released. By the time first responders arrived numerous players -who were between the ages of eight and 13 years old - and their chaperones were already off the bus, state police spokesman Bill Sadler stated. A spokeswoman said she couldn't provide any details, citing privacy laws.

The community was created for and by African-Americans after the Civil War, and black-owned businesses flourished there until desegregation enabled residents to live elsewhere.
