    Chesterfield families react to the crash that killed a triplet daughter of a New Jersey state trooper and injured 17 others, including the girls' siblings. Pei-Sze Cheng reports.

    A triplet killed in a southern New Jersey school bus crash that injured her sisters will be laid to rest this week.     

    Eleven-year-old Isabelle Tezsla, a state trooper's daughter, was killed when the school bus she was riding in and a dump truck collided Feb. 16 in Chesterfield.   

    Funeral services will be held for the sixth grader Friday in a Hamilton Square church, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.     

    Her sister Natalie was released from the hospital last week. Sister Sophie, and another student, remain hospitalized in critical condition.     

    The National Transportation Safety Board continues to investigate the crash.   

    NTSB officials said last week the driver of the bus reported pulling ahead of the roadway stop line to get a clear view and said he never saw the truck.
