A tragic New York bus accident on I-95 took the lives of 14 passengers and injured 19 others.
A private bus company was hired to bring 31 people back from the Mohegan Sun. The bus left the casino very early on Saturday morning. At approximately 5:30 AM, the bus crashed on I-95 in Westchester County, crashing through a highway sign that cut through the entire length of the bus.
The bus driver suffered minor injuries and survived the crash. Initial reports show that the bus driver claimed a tractor trailor cut him off and clipped the bus. According to an NBC News Report, some passengers have claimed otherwise.
The passengers claim that the bus driver was speeding excessively and possibly even falling asleep at the wheel; the bus was reported to have hit the rumble strips several times before the crash occurred.
The investigation as to the cause of the crash is still ongoing.
