As we saw over the weekend, passenger bus accidents are all too common.  Bus drivers have a serious obligation to keep their passengers safe and it this accident, that appears to not have happened.

The investigation is ongoing and it will take some time to determine the actual cause or causes for this tragic accident, but, the families of those lost and of those injured are suffering greatly at the moment.

I am always surprised at how little training and instruction truck and bus drivers receive before they go out onto the public highway.  My hope is that issues of safety go to the forefront and become the focus of companies operating buses and trucks on the public highways.
