Nearly two dozen passengers were injured recently when a tour bus rolled over into the median of Interstate 93 near Littleton, according to an article in The Boston Globe. The bus was transporting tourists from Quebec to Boston on the snow-covered interstate when the accident happened. Rescue workers removed five of the passengers from the scene and sent them to the Littleton hospital to be treated for their injuries. The rest of the passengers suffered only minor injuries in the accident and were not taken to a hospital for treatment.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) plans to investigate the accident. The NTSB is looking for answers to two questions:
- What caused the bus to tip over in the median? and,
- Is this crash connected to two other bus accidents that have occurred in the Northeast during March 2011?
The other accidents include a tour bus accident in the Bronx and one in New Jersey. Both accidents involved passengers on a tour, and both resulted in multiple injuries.
