************************************************************

 

In its continuing investigation of a fatal motorcoach

accident in New York City last month, the National

Transportation Safety Board has released a preliminary

factual report.

 

On Saturday, March 12, 2011, at about 5:45 a.m. EST, a 1999

Prevost motorcoach, operated by World Wide Travel of Greater

New York LTD, collided with a roadside barrier while

traveling south on route 95, resulting in 15 passenger

fatalities and numerous injuries.

 

The information being released is factual in nature and does

not provide any analysis. The report may be accessed on the

NTSB website at http://go.usa.gov/TEi.

 

Analysis of the accident facts, along with conclusions and a

determination of probable cause, will come at a later date

when the final report on the investigation is completed.

 

This is a document release only. No interviews will be

conducted.
