LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - State police are identifying the people killed when a SUV crashed into a school bus as the SUV's driver, 36-year-old Ladonna Cheatham of Patterson, and three of her passengers.
    
Trooper Stephen Hammons says 6-year-old Destiny Cheatham, 7-year-old Dwayne Escort and 16-year-old Marcus Cheatham were thrown from the vehicle and died. He says they were not wearing seat belts but 17-year-old Mark Cheatham was buckled in and suffered moderate injuries.
    
The bus was taking 30 Lafayette High School baseball players and five coaches to Berwick for a scrimmage Saturday. Police say nobody on the bus was seriously hurt.

Paul Webb's son was on the bus and says that driver Amy Dore is a hero for keeping the bus upright as it veered into a muddy field.
