Authorities in Mohave County, Arizona Investigating Fatal Grand Canyon Tour Bus Crash


The Mohave County Sherriff’s Office continues to investigate last Friday’s fatal tour bus crash that left one person dead and injured dozens of others in northwest Arizona.

Tour Bus Rolled Over and Slid Across Diamond Bar Road

The Las Vegas-based tour bus was on its way to Grand Canyon West on January 22nd when the vehicle suddenly rolled over and slid across Diamond Bar Road sometime around 12:20 p.m.

All 48 people aboard the bus, including the driver, were trapped in the heavily-damaged vehicle.

Sadly, one passenger was pronounced dead at the scene.

Paramedics transported 45 people to Kingman Region Medical Center, including two critically injured passengers who were later airlifted to an undisclosed hospital in Las Vegas. Their current condition is unknown.

Three seriously injured victims were admitted to Kingman, while the remaining victims were discharged on Friday after receiving treatment for minor injuries.

Investigators Plan on Inspecting Damaged Tour Bus

So far, authorities in Arizona have not released any other information about the victims or identified the company operating the tour bus. It’s also unknown whether the passengers were part of a group tour . However, the Mohave County Sherriff’s Office indicated it would be issuing an update in the near future.

While investigators haven’t determined the cause of the accident, reports from some passengers suggest speed might have been a factor.

The bus was transported to a tow yard shortly after the crash. The Sherriff’s office indicated that investigators would be inspecting the vehicle, but it’s not clear when that might occur.

It’s also not known if the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board will be joining the investigation, as the Board doesn’t become involved in all bus accident cases.
