New Tour Bus Crash Claims 4 Lives

Posted on April 30, 2001

Four students from a Boston-area middle school were killed and more than two dozen others were injured early Friday morning when their tour bus skidded off a highway ramp, rolled several times and landed on its side in Sussex, New Brunswick. The bus, carrying more 40 students, five adult chaperones and two drivers, was en route to a band competition in Halifax, Nova Scotia, from Newton, Mass. The bus was traveling along a Trans-Canada Highway interchange when the crash occurred. Investigators said it appeared to be exiting in the wrong direction, toward Fredericton instead of Halifax. Witnesses said several of the passengers were ejected from the bus in the crash. Police said weather did not appear to be a factor. News photos of the bus indicate it was operated by Travel Today, which has locations in Sudbury and Waltham, Mass.
