FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Highway Patrol officials have revised the number of people killed to four after a bus carrying Haitian farmworkers and a tractor-trailer collided in the Panhandle.

Authorities had previously reported that five people were killed in Saturday's crash and did not comment Sunday on the error.

A Florida pastor said Sunday he is working with authorities to help identify the victims killed and the 25 injured in the crash.

Pastor Frantz Gaudard said several onboard, including the bus driver, were church members. The farmworkers do not speak English and most of their documents were burned in the crash, making the process even more difficult.

Some of the victims are in intensive care and are in and out of consciousness.
