The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating a deadly school bus crash in Chattanooga after authorities said the driver was going “well above” the posted speed limit of 30 mph.

The crash killed five elementary school children on Monday, and the bus driver was arrested and charged with five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless endangerment and reckless driving, WBIR reports. 

Johnthony Walker, 24, of Chattanooga only had his commercial license for about seven months, according to the NTSB.

Twelve students remained in the hospital a day after the crash.

Police said the driver was speeding on a narrow, winding road.

The NTSB is expected to be in Chattanooga for 7 to 10 days.

The shooting that left five military members dead in Chattanooga last week should serve as a chilling reminder to Americans, U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, said Sunday, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports.

“If it can happen in Chattanooga, it can happen anywhere, anytime, anyplace,” the Texas Republican said on ABC’s “This Week.”

Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, who texted his friend an Islamic verse before the shooting spree and reportedly traveled to the Middle East recently, shot and killed four Marines and a Navy petty officer.

Homegrown or lone terrorists in the U.S. are a growing concern for security officials.

“What keeps us up at night are the ones we don’t know about,” McCaul said. “And I’m afraid this case falls into that category.”
