A bus bound for Niagara Falls from the District of Columbia, crashed in the woods of up-state New York killing two passengers and injuring 35.
The crash took place around 4:30 pm in Steuben County, New York. Ths bus was owned by Bedore Tours of North Tonawanda, New York. Some early speculation has suggested that a blow out may have played a role in the accident.
While overall Maryland and the District of Columbia have very safe transportation systems the sheer number of people using them and the nature of the buses and trains utilized results in catastrophic injuries on a fairly routine basis.
