New York state police say a tour bus heading from Washington, D.C., to Niagara Falls crashed in a wooded median in western New York, killing two people and injuring 35.
Spokesman Mark O'Donnell says the crash happened on Interstate 390 at 4:15 p.m. Sunday. He says the bus owned by Bedore Tours of North Tonawanda near Buffalo left Washington on Sunday morning and stopped for lunch in Pennsylvania.
O'Donnell says a preliminary report indicates that a tire blowout may have caused the driver to lose control about 55 miles southeast of Rochester.
In January 2005, a bus chartered by a Canadian women's youth hockey team rammed a parked tractor-trailer along I-390 near Geneseo, killing four people. Investigators determined the driver's lack of sleep and inexperience led to the crash.
