Funeral held for Tennessee bus crash victim

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WRIC) — A funeral service took place Saturday for one of the victims of the Tennessee School bus crash.

Cor’Dayja Jones was one of six children who died in a crash that occurred Monday.

The children’s pastor at her church said that Cor’Dayja’s presence will be sorely missed.

“She was the most genuine child you could ever meet,” Moriah Stanley said. “You know when people say that a person leaves everyone smiling? Many people just say that. But for Cor’Dayja, they really meant it.”

The bus driver responsible for the accident, Jonthany Walker, now faces at least five counts of vehicular homicide.
