On Saturday afternoon at approximately 3 p.m., a charter bus crashed in North Carolina while traveling east on US74, tragically killing 4 passengers, including a 10-year old boy, 2 college students and the bus driver, and injuring 42 others.
The charter bus was transporting Ramah Juco Academy’s football team to Fayetteville for a game against University of God’s Chosen.
Poor Maintenance Likely to Blame for Catastrophic Collision
According to authorities, the charter bus’s front tire blew out, causing it to lose control and crash into a guardrail in front of family members and friends who were following the bus in separate vehicles.
While the official crash report hasn’t been released, our initial investigation indicates that the charter company failed to regularly inspect and properly maintain the bus and its tires, which are much more likely to experience blowouts during summer months.
