There was a crash between a charter bus and an 18-wheeler near Oxford, Alabama on July 18, 2021.  The crash occurred on Interstate 20, near the Mississippi and Alabama border.  The bus was transporting a dance team from Mississippi to Atlanta, Georgia.  15 passengers were taken to a local hospital for treatment.  The cause of the crash is still being investigated.  Our thoughts and prayers to those impacted by this tragedy.

There was a deadly crash involving a charter bus in Greene County, Mississippi on February 13, 2021. There was a deadly crash involving a bus in Ethiopia on January 31, 2021, killing 24.  The accident followed the charter bus crash on January 22, 2021, when a tour bus in Arizona overturned and injured 45 passengers.  At least one person died in that accident.

Safety considerations must take precedence to ensure that anyone relying on charter transportation remains safe.  Safe charter companies must consider take necessary precautions to ensure that their busses do not put the lives of passengers at risk.  The risks of catastrophic injury should always be considered by safe vessel operators.  When charter operators fail to account for the known hazards of the industry catastrophic injuries or deaths can result.  Safe companies must hire and train only individuals who can carry out the work without putting at risk the lives of dozens of passengers.
