Seven now critical in bus rollover

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

The Richmond based tour bus company behind yesterday’s crash on the Coquihalla highway says they’re doing all they can to help those sent to the hospital.

Super Vacation, though, was quick to say the bus and driver involved in the crash were not owned by their company but were chartered to Western Bus Lines.

Director of Sales Nick Cam says they don’t know much about the driver and their clients are their first priority.

“We sent out one of the coaches and try to help customers resuming back together with family. Because no matter as a family of 2, or 4, or 6, they were spread out in different locations of the hospital.”

Super Vacations says it won’t be using Western Bus Lines again until a report into the crash is done.

Interior Health has just provided an update on the passengers caught in the crash.

It says seven of the bus passengers are in hospital in critical condition.

Six are in serious condition and 11 have non-life-threatening injuries.

Nineteen have already been discharged from hospital.
