GRAY SUMMIT, Mo., Aug. 6 (UPI) -- A light-hearted summer trip for members of a Missouri high school band ended in a deadly crash when their buses got tangled in a chain-reaction crash.

Two people were killed Thursday morning on Interstate 44, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Dozens of people were injured, most of them members of the Red Regiment Band at John F. Hodge High School in St. James.

Band members had raised money for the annual outing to Six Flags. The crash occurred as they neared the park.

Officials with Climate Express in Washington, Mo., said one of their drivers, in a tractor with no trailer attached, slowed down for construction. A pickup truck rear-ended the tractor and was then hit by one of the two school buses.

The dead were identified as Jessica Brinker, 16, a member of the band, and Daniel Schatz, 19, the driver of the pickup. Schatz was a reserve quarterback at the University of Missouri-Columbia and son of a Republican candidate for Congress from Missouri.

Israeli military officials denied an airstrike was responsible for an explosion at the Gaza home of a Hamas commander early Monday.

Palestinian media reports claimed an Israel air force jet fired a missile at the house; however, the Israeli army said there were no activities in the Gaza Strip at the time of the blast.

An Israeli security official told Israel Radio the explosion may have been the result of a work accident, that a bomb being prepared blew up prematurely.

The force of the blast demolished the home of the Hamas commander identified as Alaa al-Danaf, and five other surrounding buildings in Dir al-Ballah in central Gaza, the Maan news agency said.

Danaf a senior member of the Hamas military wing is also a bomb expert, Palestinian media reports said.

Adham Abu Salmiyya, a medical service worker, told the news agency a missile was fired from an Israeli Air Force jet and hit the home.
