Wow...that is scary! We were on a big bus on st. M and i will tell you a few times i just had to close my eyes and go to my "happy place". Very dangerous roads!

Wow, my first thought was the folks in the top photo looked to be in pretty decent spirits. They went through a pretty harrowing experience. I feel for the driver and passengers in the mini-bus. They must have felt pretty helpless seeing that big bus bearing down on them.

The first bus didn't have functioning breaks and the replacement bus driver couldn't drive as he ran into a sign backing up.

Great company...

Wow, that was sure scary, they are lucky to be alive...I hope they figure out the cause of the brakes not working if that was the problem. I too have had some hair raising rides while on tour buses, just not sure they are inspected that well.
