CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A Statesville woman is still hospitalized after a deadly church bus crash in Tennessee and is sharing her story. Norma Hellard was one of the Front Street Baptist members who was seriously injured when a tire malfunctioned and crashed into a tractor-trailer and SUV in Jefferson County last Wednesday. The accident killed eight people with six of them from the Charlotte area. Hellard said she feels blessed to be alive. "The last thing I remember was flying through the air," Hellard. "I heard the screeching and I (felt) the fishtailing of the bus." She suffered a broken pelvis bone, five broken ribs and a fracture on her foot.
