RIDGEFIELD, N.J. (WPIX)
Yet another tour bus has crashed Monday night. This one was a Ridgefield, New Jersey-based PRT tour bus rolling over in New Hampshire, seriously injuring five people. The bus was on its way to Boston from Quebec with 25 visitors from Korea on board.
State police say it was snowy on that highway, and the driver lost control. After three serious bus crashes in the Northeast, some may wonder if this bus should have been on the road in that kind of weather.
It's the third tour bus accident in the Northeast this month, none matching the grisly scene of the Chinatown-bound Worldwide Tours bus coming back from Mohegan Sun on March 12th in which 15 people died.
That was followed shortly by yet another deadly bus crash on a New Jersey highway. Two people died.
And Monday, the man behind the wheel at the deadly Bronx bus crash, Ophadell Williams, broke his silence.
The Brooklyn ex-con with a suspended license says he's having a tough time coping, and a difficult time breathing saying quote "I am really hurt about the whole situation."
Investigators are still looking into the causes of all three crashes.
