Bus accident kills two in Northern Arizona
On Sunday October 17th a tour bus crashed in Northern Arizona. The bus was traveling from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon and crashed near the Lake Mead Recreational Area. The vehicle, carrying twelve people was en route to visit the Grand Canyon when the accident occurred. Several people were injured onboard and were airlifted to Las Vegas medical facilities, while others were taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center. The names of the passengers have not been released by authorities.
Due in part to the large size of buses and tractor trailers, drivers should take special care to stay out of blind-spots. Buses are much heavier and the time needed to stop a bus takes much longer than an average vehicle. Earlier this year a charter bus rolled near Casa Grande killing seven people and injuring dozens more. The cause of that wreck is still under investigation. Bus accident injuries are becoming more common and can be more severe because most buses do not have seatbelts.
