It happened on a remote stretch of highway 12 in southern Utah, not far from Bryce Canyon. Medics triaging victims on the highway, many ejected from the bus. At least four people dead, 15 in critical condition. The Highway Patrol says 30 people were on board the bus when it went off the road and hit a guardrail, smashing the roof and tearing open the passenger compartment. Witnesses rushed to help. I would imagine it be something like a car bombing on the highway. Like we seen Afghanistan, it was just debris suitcases things all over the road. That's a terrible thing to see somebody's loved on holding their wife's head when they are passed.
Tonight no word on the name of the tour bus or where it's based. In the U.S. There are 3,000 motorcoach carriers. Now investigators looking into a fatal crash in Utah. They will look at the drivers background, looking for unsafe behaviors or patterns of unsafe behaviors. They'll look at the bus itself to determine if there was an equipment failure. Tonight the NTSB has launched a 10-member go-team to investigate, a call has gone out in the county for any Chinese speaking translators. A similar bus crash about 90 miles from Bryce Canyon back in 2010 killed three tourists and injured 11.
This new transformation is at least as consequential as that one was
They set up a working party to look into the issue.
