A school bus crash in Knoxville, Tenn., that killed two students and one adult Tuesday is now the focus of an investigation that includes the National Transportation Safety Board.

NTSB officials traveled Wednesday to help the Knoxville Police Department, which is leading the inquiry into the unusual crash that involved two school buses.

Two buses were shuttling students home when, authorities said, the bus from Chilhowee made a sharp turn and crossed a concrete median, striking the Sunnyview bus..
