Greyhound stops service after crash

Posted on October 3, 2001

Greyhound service was suspended nationwide following a bus crash this morning that left at least six people dead. Service is scheduled to resume at 12 p.m. CST. The 40-passenger bus crashed after a passenger slit the driver's throat, according to a woman onboard the bus. That report was not confirmed but a hospital official told the Associated Press (AP) that the driver was treated for a laceration of the neck and was stable after surgery. An investigation team including a number of U.S. Department of Transportation agencies and the FBI was dispatched to the scene. Officials do not believe the incident to be terrorist-related. The alleged perpetrator has a Croation passport and it's not yet known if he survived. The bus, No. 1115, left Louisville, Ky., for Atlanta before crashing at 4:15 a.m. CST. It's final destination was Orlando, Fla. For the latest news, go to www.greyhound.com.

Previous studies have found that citizens in areas with more transit options have a lower BMI because transit use also includes walking and biking, however, using BMI for that conclusion doesn’t account for commuters who may eat fast food every day or substitute buses and trains for walking from place to place.
