Indiana's Colonial Hills Baptist Church is mourning after a devastating bus crash over the weekend.

Thirty-seven people were returning from a Michigan camp when the brakes failed on their bus only a mile away from home. It slammed into a barrier and flipped onto its side.

Colonial Hills Youth Pastor Chad Phelps, his pregnant wife, Courtney Phelps, and a member of the congregation were killed. The Phelps' 2-year-old son was injured in the crash.

"We're going to have a long road, but God is good," Deacon Jeff Leffew said at a Sunday news conference.

Seven teens remain hospitalized, with one in critical condition.
