[DI] — As investigators continue to look for the cause of the early-morning Wednesday bus crash on I- 80, the issue of passenger bus safety is in the limelight again. The Union County accident, which killed one and injured more than 40 others, is the second major traffic incident in less than a month involving a Greyhound bus. Alexandra Pedrini, spokeswoman for Greyhound, said the driver of the bus that crashed in Union County was well within the federal Hours of Service requirements driving regulations of the company, which require nine hours of off-duty between shifts. This driver was “well within the requirements”.
