UPDATE: Three victims of Broadfording Christian Academy bus accident remain in stable condition

KNOXVILLE, Tn. - New details have emerged regarding the group of students from Broadfording Christian Academy, who were heading to a National Association of Christian Athletes tournament in Tennessee, when they got into a serious accident on Interstate-81 this week.

The students involved in the accident were members of the soccer and volleyball teams.

According to Joseph Cartwright, the school's head volleyball coach, of the seven people taken to the hospital, one player, a parent and the assistant volleyball coach are still being treated but are in stable condition.

"We are basically praising God that we are not getting ready for funerals because it was that bad,” said Coach Cartwright. “We have been very encouraged and just blown away for our school praying for us.” 

The victims remain at the University of Tennessee Medical Hospital in Knoxville.

Three vehicles were involved in the accident, while the instigator of the crash left the scene. 

The school decided the volleyball team will not compete in the tournament, but the soccer team did. They play Friday on the final day of the tournament.
