Greyhound has claimed another life. One of their buses hit three other vehicles on April 22, 2017, in British Columbia, Canada. At least seven people were hospitalized with severe injuries and other people suffered injuries from the wreck, according to the CBC

The bus was traveling north on Highway 97 south of Quesnel, BC, when it caused a multi-car wreck. A car and a pickup truck were traveling behind a Kubota tractor that was hauling farm equipment at low speed. The Greyhound bus driver failed to yield to the tractor and the other two vehicles, killing the driver of the tractor and injuring many people. 

The RCMP report that the investigation is in the early stages and collision reconstruction and commercial vehicle enforcement services experts are at work determining the cause of the wreck. They do not believe alcohol was a factor in the wreck.
