Ky. crash survivor buys bus to fulfill calling

RADCLIFF, Ky. (AP) — When Quinton Higgins bought a bus last month, his family thought he was crazy.

But Higgins told The News-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1qVspHK) that he had a calling to fulfill.

The 42-year-old school bus driver, who survived the horrific 1988 bus crash in Carrollton that killed 27, says he felt God wanted him to buy the vehicle. He plans to use it as a memorial to crash victims and as a reminder to not drink and drive.

Higgins was among 67 people on the church bus from Radcliff that was hit by a drunken driver in the nation's deadliest alcohol-related highway crash.

Higgins has put pictures of the victims in bus windows along with a sign that says, "27 reasons not to drink and drive."

He plans to use it during speaking engagements.
