At this time, none of the injured, nor the deceased have been identified to the media, and information is still coming in from the crash site, as rescue workers endeavor to clear the debris.

Conflicting information has the bus heading for Orlando, other sources claim it was on the way back to Houston. Motorists are advised to detour through Mobile to avoid the interstate blockage occasioned by the rescue operation.
