Kingman, AZ– Two people were killed when a commercial tour bus veered off an Arizona highway, rolling several times on Sunday, October 17, 2010. The fatal rollover accident occurred around 8 a.m., near the community of Meadview on the southeastern side of the Lake Mead Recreation Area, as reported by USA Today.
The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office reported a commercial tour bus, carrying a dozen people, was headed from Las Vegas to the western rim on the Grand Canyon when the bus drifted off the highway and overturned several times. The dozen people on the bus included a group of Chinese tourists and the driver.
Several passengers were flown to hospitals in the Las Vegas and Kingman areas. Two people were killed in the wreck.
The identities of the passengers are currently being withheld.
It is unknown what caused the tour bus to veer off the highway.
A full investigation into the fatal crash is underway.
This is the third charter bus crash in that region in two years. In January 2008, 10 Chinese tourists were injured and 10 others were killed, when their bus crashed during a return trip from the Grand Canyon. In August, 11 Japanese tourists were injured and three were killed when their bus rolled on Interstate 1, in southeastern Utah. They were also returning from a four-day tour of the national parks, which included the Grand Canyon.
