Conflicting Causes Reported for March 12 Bronx Bus Accident

Posted on Apr 07, 2011

Even though it has been weeks since the March 12 bus accident that killed 15 people and injured 19 people in the Bronx, the investigation into what caused the accident continues. The New York bus crash occurred on I-95 at about 5:30 a.m. as a bus was returning to New York City's Chinatown from a Connecticut casino.

As New York State Police and federal officials continue to investigate the cause of this accident, the driver and passengers are starting to speak out. The bus driver asserts that he was sober and well rested at the time of the crash. He explains the accident by alleging that he swerved to avoid crashing into a tractor-trailer.

Passengers on the bus allege that the driver was drowsy and that he swerved onto the shoulder of the road several times before the fatal accident. One of the passengers has accused the driver of "negligently falling asleep" at the wheel.

This March 12 New York bus accident has prompted a discussion about the safety of these low-cost tour buses in New York and New Jersey.

Our New York injury lawyers extend our deepest condolences to the families of those killed in this crash and our best wishes for a quick and complete recovery to those who were injured.
