Sadly, another fatal bus accident. On Saturday, fifteen people were tragically killed when a bus overturned just north of New York City. Late Monday evening, there are reports of another fatal bus accident – this time near East Brunswick, New Jersey on the New Jersey Turnpike. Early unconfirmed reports indicate that two people were killed as a result of the crash. Various news services are reporting a number of injuries as well. The bus is reportedly operated by Super Luxury Tours, Inc. of Wilkes-Barre, PA.
The cause of the accident is not yet known as the investigation is still underway. We hope that both accidents are investigated thoroughly so that these tragedies can attempt to be avoided in the future.
