INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The prosecutor’s office in Indianapolis is reviewing the police investigation that blames excessive speed on an interstate exit ramp for the crash of a church bus that killed three people.

A Marion County prosecutor’s office spokeswoman said Friday no decision has been made on whether the bus driver will face any criminal charges.

A police report on the crash says state police inspectors found no mechanical problems with the bus. The driver told police following the July 27 crash that the bus’ brakes suddenly failed before it crashed just off an Interstate 465 exit.

About 30 others on the Colonial Hills Baptist Church were hurt as it was returning from a youth camping trip in Michigan. The crash killed the church’s youth pastor, his pregnant wife and a camper’s mother.
