A bus carrying 67 members of a Radcliff church group and their friends home from an amusement park outing in Ohio was struck head-on by a pickup traveling in the wrong direction on I-71.   Twenty-seven people were killed in the fiery crash, most of them children. 

The crash is the focus of a new documentary that will be screened for the first time tonight for survivors and family members in Radcliff.  It’s called Impact: After the Crash.

WFPL’s Rick Howlett spoke with the film’s director and co-producer, Jason Epperson.  He says the project began as a profile of crash survivor Harold Dennis, who helped expand the scope of the film.
