Officials from Cooper University Hospital said Sophie Tezsla and Jonathan Zdybel, both 11 years old, are now in stable condition.  Tezsla’s triplet, Isabelle, was killed in the crash.  Her funeral is scheduled for Friday at The Church of St. Gregory the Great in Hamilton Square.  Their father is State Police Sergeant Anthony Tezsla.  Natalie Tezsla was released from the hospital last week.

The fatal collision involving the bus and a dump truck occurred just after 8 a.m. on February 16 at a four-way intersection on Route 528 and Old York Road in the rural community. It sent the bus, carrying 25 students, crashing sideways into a traffic pole. Seventeen students were injured.  The students were on their way

The National Transportation Safety Board continues to investigate the accident.
