Dozens of volunteers help blood bank give to Knoxville bus crash victims

Kentucky - Thanks to dozens of volunteers who regularly donate blood to local banks, the Kentucky Blood Center was able to help victims of a deadly bus crash in Tennessee.

The crash happened yesterday afternoon when a tire blew out of a church bus on I-40, just east of Knoxville, sending the bus into oncoming traffic.

Eight people were killed and dozens were injured.

Officials with the Blood Center say they received a request to send donations to Knoxville shortly after the crash.
