Fourth tour-bus crash since March kills driver

June 28, 2011

PITTSBURGH – In another high-profile bus crash, a tour-bus driver died and 23 passengers were injured June 27 when the bus struck the rear of a tractor-trailer near here on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, reports Reuters.

The bus, owned by New Oriental Tours and carrying Asian tourists, was enroute to New Jersey from Kentucky.

In May, four died when a tour bus crashed in Virginia after the driver fell asleep. In March, 17 died in two separate tour-bus crashes – one in New York City; the other in New Jersey.
