The National Transportation Safety Board has given the Transportation Department failing grades for its slow progress in implementing its recommendations, some of which date back more than a decade.
The National Transportation Safety Board is studying the crash to see whether new safety technologies that are available, but not required, might have made a difference. For example, there are collision warning systems that alert drivers to obstacles in their paths and tell them when they are swerving from their lanes. It’s too early to know whether any of the safety recommendations would have made a difference.
The bus ran off the road along Interstate 95 in the Bronx as it was returning to New York’s Chinatown from an overnight trip to a Connecticut casino.
Though operated by different companies, the buses were among scores that line up in Chinatown each day for bargain-price trips to casinos and elsewhere.
On a typical weekday in New York, about 4,000 seats are sold on dozens of such buses, and 6,000 on weekends, residents say.
Federal regulators have long recognized the dangers of fly-by-night bus companies that skimp on safety and skirt the regulations. However, the bus company in the Bronx crash, World Wide Travel, has no history of serious problems.
Driver fatigue, which has been cited more often than any other reason as a cause or contributing factor to bus crashes, has been the target of a slew of recommendations not just for buses and trucks, but in aviation, rail and marine accidents as well. NTSB investigators have said they are looking at casino surveillance tapes and gathering other evidence to establish what driver Ophadell Williams ate, what he drank and how much he slept before Saturday’s crash.


Investigators said survivors and other witnesses have disputed Williams’ claim that his bus was clipped by a tractor-trailer before it ran off the road. Williams served time in prison for manslaughter and grand larceny, and state officials told The Associated Press that Williams was ticketed in 1995 for speeding and driving without a license and that his driving privileges were suspended when he ignored those violations.
World Wide Travel didn’t return calls for information on how Williams managed to get hired. Like the NTSB, the police are looking into Williams’ activities before the crash and have viewed surveillance video from the Mohegan Sun.
Federal statistics show that the number of fatal crashes involving buses has been declining somewhat in recent years, from 340 deaths in 2005 to 254 in 2009.

The officials spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the investigation.
New York State Police spokesman Joseph Becerra, would not reveal what police had seen on the recordings or what witnesses were telling police about Williams’ activities in Connecticut or his behavior behind the wheel.
In addition to cracking down on shady bus companies, the Transportation Department under LaHood wants to require all new buses be equipped with seatbelts.
