On Monday afternoon, a tour bus accident in Florida killed two people and injured several others. The tour group is based out of Boston and three Massachusetts residents are believed to be among the bus crash victims, although authorities have not released the names of those killed.
All but one of the people on the bus were transported to local hospitals. The passengers ranged in age from 66 to 87.
A Florida Highway Patrol crash report states that an 81-year-old woman in a Mercury Sable failed to yield right of the bus and the vehicles crashed into each other. The bus apparently rolled over twice before it landed on its side. The driver of the Sable was not injured. As of last night, no charges had been filed in conjunction with the roadway accident.
