DEFUNIAK SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) -- Two children and a woman are dead following the crash of the church van they were riding in.
The Northwest Florida Daily News reports the driver lost control of the van Saturday morning after a rear tire blew out. At least 10 people were on the van, which was heading to Tallahassee on Interstate 10.
