2006_08_greyhound.jpgA Greyhound bus making its way from New York City to Montreal drove off the Interstate near the Canadian border, falling down an embankment and rolling over at least twice. Five passengers were believed to have been killed and many others were injured. The bus was the 1PM from the Port Authority, carrying many tourists back to Montreal; the NY Times reported that even though some injured passengers wanted to continue their way to Montreal, there were difficulties since many passports were still on the bus.

As of this morning, investigators have not found the bus driver's body and won't be able to determine the cause of the crash until the bus is righted. Greyhound says the bus passed its annual federal inspection recently. The accident occurred near Elizabethtown, which is 100 miles north of Albany and not too far from the Canadian border.
