Police: Tour bus driver dead in Vt. truck crash
WEST HAVEN, Vt. (AP and CBS6) -- Police say the driver of a tour bus that collided with a tractor-trailer on an icy Vermont roadway has died.
Vermont State Police say 59-year-old bus driver Darnell Hannah was pinned inside the bus when it struck the jackknifed truck hauling K-Cup coffee products on Route 22A in West Haven, about 60 miles south of Burlington. Two passengers had moderate injuries while others reported minor injuries.
Investigators say the tractor-trailer was stopped in the roadway Friday night when the bus crested a hill and lost control before hitting the guard rails and the trailer. Thirty-two people were on board the bus.
The bus company was Triple D Travel out of New Jersey, heading North to Sugarbush and Stowe. Hannah was from Millstone, N.J.
The road was closed for several hours and reopened Saturday morning.
