Tour Bus Crash Near Hoover Dam in Arizona - Several Fatalities

Earlier today a tour bus traveling on highway 93 in Arizona (about 20 miles past the Hoover dam at the Nevada / Arizona border) ended up on its side after rolling at least once. The most recent report indicates 7 dead and 15 injured.

Several of the passengers were ejected from the bus (a model capable of carrying 24 people) and the driver was one of the critical injured.

When catastrophic bus accidents occur many factors may be involved. Our past experience in bus crashes have indicated causes such as driver error, unsafe road conditions, and mechanical failures. Many times several factors are responsible, such as low tread tires in a severe rainstorm.
