Truck Hits Bus; Woman Dies
Fung Wah is a bus line popular for low rates in New York City. It's also notorious for being accident prone. The latest accident involving Fung Wah occurred Monday morning. As passengers were waiting to board the bus to its Boston route, it was hit from behind by a dump truck which sent it flying into a bank, crushing 57-year-old Lai Ho who was waiting to board. The accident, which happened at the intersection of Canal Street and the Bowery, also injured four others. The dump truck allegedly lost control as it was exiting the Manhattan Bridge ramp.
Fung Wah was involved in an accident in 2006 when the Boston bound bus overturned, injuring 33 people. Another bus lost its rear wheels as it was en route to New York. Fung Wah has also been in trouble for hiring drivers who do not speak English.
The dump truck is part of the fleet at South Kearney, New Jersey-based CPQ Freight Systems, which has had two fatal accidents this year.
