Another bus accident occurred- this time in Illinois. The bus, a Megabus, slammed into a bridge support pillar on an interstate highway in Illinois. At least one passenger was killed and dozens of others were hospitalized following the crash yesterday.
It is not immediately clear as to what caused the crash but some reports indicate a potential blown out tire. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration commented that it would work with local authorities "to determine if there are safety implications that merit agency action."
This is just another bus accident after a string of crashes involving low-fare buses in recent years, some of which occurred in the New York area
