A family member tells KHOU 11 the high schoolers were from Channelview and on their way back home to Texas after a trip to Disney, but Channelview ISD has not yet confirmed this information.

One person is dead and another in critical condition after a bus carrying high school band members to Texas from Disney World, crashed into a ravine on the Alabama-Florida line Tuesday.

Baldwin County Sheriff's Office Major Anthony Lowery said the bus plunged off Interstate 10 into a deep ravine early Tuesday and multiple helicopters responded.

A second bus on the spring break trip, driving ahead of the one that crashed, is continuing on to Texas, the sheriff said.

A TOUR bus reportedly carrying more than 50 people has careered off an embankment near the Alabama-Florida state line.

Mack did not identify the person killed but said several injured people were taken to 10 hospitals in Baldwin County, the Alabama cities of Mobile, Daphne and Fairhope, and Pensacola, Florida.

The crash shut down I-10 in both directions.
