Arizona Commercial Tour Bus Accident Kills Two, Injuries Several Others
Commercial tour buses are used by visitors who all want to spend time at the same destination. These vehicles and this choice of transportation is usually made because those who want to make these trips would like to avoid the responsibility and risk of driving on unfamiliar roads. Sadly, there are times when this seemingly responsible choice leads to tragedy, as it apparently did with an Arizona tour bus accident over the weekend that killed two people and injured several others.
According to police, the latest fatal Arizona tour bus accident occurred at approximately 8 a.m. on Sunday morning in Mohave County on Pierce Ferry Road near milepost 23. The area sits near the community of Meadview on the southeastern side of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and it appears that those on the bus were on their way to the Grand Canyon. Apparently, the bus drifted off of the road and rolled several times. Two people were killed as a result and several more were injured, although none of the names of those involved were released.
