Documentary about deadly bus crash has Lexington premiere

Hundreds of people filled the Kentucky Theatre Thursday night for the Lexington premiere of a documentary called "The Very Worst Thing."

Newspapers from 52 years ago and pictures of the victims reminded movie-goers of what happened on February 28, 1958.

A school bus plunged off Old U.S. 23 and into the Big Sandy River.

26 students and the driver died. 22 other survived.

The documentary directors say the film helped some of the survivors, even after all these years later.

The filmmakers hope to announced a return engagement at the Kentucky Theater because tonight's showing was a sell out.
