Last week we discussed the fatal tour bus accident that occurred in New York City and killed 15 people. On Monday evening another tour bus accident occurred in Littleton, Vermont near the Vermont and Quebec, Canada border. The commercial accident was the third bus accident to occur in less than two weeks. The bus accident injured 23 people and no people were killed. Investigators have interviewed the driver and have not ruled out palm beach criminal charges.
The tour bus was traveling from Quebec to Boston and was carrying two dozen Korean passengers. The driver of the bus lost control on Interstate 93 near the Vermont border with Canada around 8:15 p.m. During the evening light snow was on the ground in the area, which also caused sporadic fog. Passengers that were on the bus were thankfully able to complete their trip the following day.
According to police five passengers were seriously injured and were taken to a local hospital. Eighteen other people were treated for lesser and minor injuries. The bus driver’s history is being reviewed by authorities but authorities have not made any conclusions at this point.
The bus accident was the third serious bus accident to occur in the Northeast over the last two weeks. The first serious and fatal bus accident occurred on March 12 and killed 15 people in New York, and the second accident occurred in New Jersey . The fatal bus accident in New Jersey occurred last week and happened as the bus was traveling from New York’s Chinatown to Philadelphia. The driver and a passenger were killed in the New Jersey crash. Twelve other passengers were injured.
