In what’s being called the “largest single safety crackdown” of the motor coach industry, federal officials have shut down 26 bus operations that transport more than 1,800 passengers a day along Interstate 95 from New York to Florida for safety violations.
A Greyhound bus bound for St. Louis from New York City flipped on its side on the Pennsylvania Turnpike early Saturday, briefly trapping a woman and injuring about two dozen people, authorities said.
An investigation into a fiery crash between a tractor-trailer and a tour bus that killed the truck driver and injured at least 30 passengers on the bus will focus on just where the bus was when it was hit and how fast it was going, police say.
The tour bus collided with a tractor-trailer, and both vehicles erupted in flame. The driver of the truck was killed. Some of the injured were airlifted to area hospitals.
