NTSB: NYC bus crash not caused by truck-tractor collision

The National Transportation Safety Board found no evidence that a truck-tractor hit the World Wide Travel bus on March 12 in New York City. The accident left 15 passengers dead and 18 injured. The bus driver had told authorities that the truck had encroached into his lane and struck the bus.

The bus was returning on Interstate-95 from the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT, headed to New York City. After leaving the road the motorcoach traveled about 480 feet before the front of the vehicle collided with a support pole for an overhead bridge sign. The impact sheared off the top of the bus for almost the entire length of the bus. Except for the driver’s seat, the motorcoach was not equipped with seat belts. For more, visit www.ntsb.gov.
