LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) - 2 NEWS Investigates obtained Greyhound's safety record and found the company has had more than 100 crashes in the past two years but the company still has a high safety rating.
The company said the driver has worked for Greyhound for the past 15 years and has a clean driving record. His name has not been released.
2 NEWS Investigates looked further into Greyhound's safety record. In a report from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the company has had 102 crashes in the past two years, 57 of them caused injuries, three caused deaths.
"Greyhound buses are very safe to ride on and this incident is very unique. It's not something that happens often," said Alexandra Pedrini, a spokesperson for Greyhound.
Despite the crashes, Greyhound does have a "satisfactory" safety rating, which is the highest a company can receive.
Pedrini said all motor-coaches are inspected frequently.
"Greyhound buses are all inspected every 12,000 miles; we had a certified inspector make sure everything is good to go with the coach, and before every trip, we have our drivers do a pre-trip inspection to make sure everything is running smoothly and the coach is road ready," said Pedrini.
Pedrini said the motor-coach involved in the accident passed inspection 14 days ago.
