Crashed Toronto charter bus shouldn't have been in US
A Toronto bus that flipped in New Jersey on its way to New York had no business being in the US at all.
A branch of the US Department of Transportation says AVM Max
2000 Charter Services Inc. had let its insurance lapse in July.
Online records also show the company had cited 5 times for having fatigued drivers since last April. In one case, a driver spent more than the 11 hours allowed on duty.
23 people, including 2 kids were hospitalized Saturday when the Max 2000 bus crashed onto its side off a New Jersey interstate ramp. None of the injuries were life-threatening. 3 people were in still in hospital Monday afternoon.
The people aboard the bus were headed to an annual Grenadian Seventh Day Adventist event in Brooklyn.
The driver told police he'd been cut off just before the crash.
