CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WZTV) —
Family members have identified the children killed in a school bus crash in Chattanooga.
As WTVC reports, families identified the students killed as Cordayja Jones, D'Myunn Brown, Zyaira Mateen, Zoie Nash and Zyanna Harris.
On Monday, a school bus crashed into a utility pole and tree, killing several students and sending dozens to the hospital. The driver has since been arrested and charged with vehicular homicide.
Mateen, only 6, was a daughter, big sister and friend. Her mother said she was "always helping everyone around her." She even wanted to be a doctor someday.
While Brown, also 6, was his mother's only child. She gave a tearful phone interview to CNN.
A vigil was held Tuesday night for the victims. When mourners left the church, they released balloons into the sky.
