Authorities investigating the deadly Mexican cruise excursion crash are blaming a drunken tractor trailer driver for the carnage.
According to the New York Daily News a drunken tractor trailer driver lost control as he was driving near the bus, ran onto the left shoulder and then overcompensated to the right. The tour bus was coming toward the tractor trailer and was stuck by the big rig, killing 12 people.
According to the article the driver of the tractor trailer will be charged with involuntary homicide.
This week 12 people were killed, and many more injured, when a tour bus crashed in Mexico. The bus was filled with cruise ship passengers on excursion from the Royal Caribbean Serenade of the Seas and the Celebrity Equinox. The incident and loss of life has caused outrage among victims and has left many wondering just how safe cruise ship excursions really are.
Though data on the frequency of cruise ship excursion incidents may be difficult to obtain, due to the lack of reporting, some notable examples of cruise ship excursion injury are relevant to the discussion.
- In February a bus carrying passengers from the Celebrity Solstice cruise ship crashed, and went down a 150-foot embankment. Several were injured in the incident, and two people were critically injured.
- In July it was reported that a cruise ship passenger was seriously injured or killed while on excursion.
- In 2011 a cruise ship passenger on excursion was shot and killed during a gang shootout on the island of St. Thomas.
