Company in Oregon bus crash banned from Canada roads
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure said Friday a post-crash investigation found the company was not following British Columbia law regarding driver hours of service and pre-trip inspections.
The action comes three days after the U.S. Department of Transportation revoked the Vancouver-based company's authority to provide passenger service in the United States. The agency alleged the company routinely dispatches drivers without ensuring they are properly rested.
A company attorney said this week the driver was adequately rested and black ice was a significant factor in the bus losing control.
Police have yet to say what caused the Dec. 30 crash.
