Watch: Families Emotionally Identify the Very Young Victims of Tragic Chattanooga School Bus Crash

Zyanna, Dayja and Zoie are remembered by loved ones.

The first three deceased victims of the Woodmore Elementary school bus crash have been identified by their families. On Tuesday, an unnamed stepfather identified one of the children killed as 10-year-old Zyanna Harris, reported WREG

  • Zyanna's stepfather spoke with WREG's Michael Quander about her untimely death.

  • The family of Mother LaTesha Ballard also identified one of the killed victims as Dayja.

  • And Twon McClain identified his niece, Zoie.

  • Father Craig Harris said his daughter, stepson and niece were all injured in the crash.

    "This morning, they're doing a lot better," Harris said on GMA. ”My daughter and my stepson, they're in a lot of pain and a little bit of shock still, but for the most part, they're fine. My niece, she’s in recovery this morning. She just got out of surgery about an hour ago and they're just keeping a close eye on her."

    Harris also added he has seen driver Johnthony Walker drive a "little faster than he probably should be going.”

    "That's the reason why I tried to be there in the mornings when he's pulling up," Harris said. "And also in the evenings because some days he would come up the street and drop them off, some days he would go down the street and drop them off and I'm not a bus driver so I'm not sure what their protocol is. But I kind of figured that wasn't something he was supposed to be doing."
