Authorities investigating NY Megabus crash

Authorities are still investigating the cause of the crash of a Megabus near Syracuse, NY early on September 11 that left four dead and 24 others transported to area hospitals. According to The Canadian Press, the double-decker Megabus hit the bottom of a railroad bridge on the Onondaga Lake Parkway, overturned and landed on its side around 2:30 a.m. Authorities believe the driver misjudged the low bridge, which is at a height of 10 feet, 9 inches. The Megabus is more than 13 feet tall. The 59-year-old driver, who apparently took a wrong turn and was not on a prescribed route, has been with Megabus since July 21. The Megabus left Philadelphia around 10 p.m. Friday night en route to Toronto, with scheduled stops in Syracuse and Buffalo.

Megabus is a European-based brand and offers low-cost trips on double-decker buses between Toronto and cities in New York State including Syracuse, Buffalo and New York City, as well as Philadelphia and Washington D.C. For more, visit www.theglobeandmail.com.
