Posted on August 4, 2011

WHITNEY POINT, N.Y. — Three tour bus crashes resulting in multiple injuries have occurred in Upstate New York over the last three weeks, YNN reported. In the most recent accident, more than a dozen people were injured after a bus, operated by Pennsylvania-based Amerpol Tours, crashed on Interstate 81 in Whitney Point. The bus was traveling from Niagara Falls to New Jersey. Twenty-eight of the 30 passengers were tourists from Poland.

Less than two weeks ago, one person was killed and 30 were injured in a crash involving a bus and a tractor-trailer on the Thruway in Seneca County, and a few days before that, a tour bus crash in Steuben County led to the death of two people and injured dozens more. The bus was headed from Washington, D.C., to Niagara Falls. For the full story, click here.
