Tour Bus Crash Kills Two

Two people were killed and 21 injured when a casino bus overturned on the highway outside Austin, Minnesota yesterday afternoon. Two of those injured are in critical condition. The bus was returning from a casino visit in Northwoood, Iowa, and heading east when it crossed the median and westbound lanes, then left I-90 and landed in a ditch on the right side of the road.

A spokesman from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety says that the weather conditions were good at the time of the bus accident and that it is still under investigation. The driver is still in serious condition and it is unknown at this time what information can be given. However, several of the passengers have given statements to investigators.

Anytime there is a bus accident involving a tour bus or casino bus, the condition of the driver and the bus itself are taken into consideration. Was the driver asleep or under the influence? Was the driver speeding? Were they even paying attention? Were the brakes working? Was the weather or angle of the sun a factor? With so many questions to answer, it may take investigators time to find answers. This may not be comforting to the victims and their families, especially to those who died.

In the meantime, it is important that those on the bus or families of those on the bus speak to an experienced bus accident attorney in their area. An attorney can help get the compensation needed to cover medical bills or future lost earnings.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced bus accident attorney in your area for an initial consultation.
