Greyhounds back in business for Valley

October 03, 2001|By AARON CLAVERIE, Staff Writer

CALEXICO — Greyhound buses were back on the road as of 10 this morning.

The buses had been parked for four hours after a Greyhound bus accident this morning in Tennessee.

According to wire reports, a Greyhound bus motoring through Tennessee around 6 a.m. was involved in an accident after the driver's throat was allegedly slit by a passenger.

Six people were confirmed dead and 32 were injured, including the alleged assailant.

There were conflicting reports about whether the incident is related to the Sept. 11 attacks against the U.S.

A manager at the Calexico depot referred all specific questions about the incident to Greyhound headquarters in Dallas but did say the buses would roll at 10 a.m. and all schedules would be pushed back four hours.

Passengers who were to have left at 6:05 a.m. for Los Angeles left at 10:05 a.m. instead, and so on.

The manager said the pattern should continue throughout the day but anyone planning on leaving the Valley via a Greyhound bus this afternoon should call their local depot.
