Support is pouring in from across the country for the victims of the tragic weekend bus crash in Indianapolis.  

The bus was traveling back from a church camp in Michigan when it struck a retaining wall on a busy interstate and flipped on its side.   Chad Phelps, his pregnant wife Courtney and Tonya Weindorf, were killed and 26 others were hospitalized.  

Phelps’ childhood friend Tyler Willis and his wife recently established a $20,000 online fundraising goal for the Phelps' surviving son, Chase, who will turn two in October.  With three months left to raise the money, Willis and his wife have already surpassed their goal.

Meanwhile, funeral services will be held this week for the victims. The funeral for Tonya Weindorf will be August 2nd at 10:30 a.m. The funeral for Chad and Courtney Phelps will be August 3rd at 11 a.m.
