The driver of a tour bus taking nearly 50 passengers to the Grand Canyon died after the bus crashed last Friday. The bus was returning from the Grand Canyon on Highway 93 when the driver lost control of the bus.
After the driver lost control, the bus went off of the road, through a ravine, up a hill and then traveled some 700 feet across the rough terrain before stopping. Silver State Trailways, the bus company, said that the driver may have lost control of the bus because he had a heart attack. It is not clear whether the driver died of personal injuries sustained in the bus accident or from his medical condition.
48 passengers on the bus were injured. The six passengers with the most severe personal injuries were transported by air to Las Vegas hospitals. 15 others were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment. The rest of the injured passengers received only minor personal injuries, such as bruises. None of the passengers are believed to have life threatening injuries.
This is the third deadly tour bus crash that has happened in the area since 2009.
