Officials: Bus in fatal Calif. crash not inspected

Recent Outbreaks Posted on

California Highway Patrol records show a charter bus that crashed and killed nine people earlier this month was not inspected for safety because the owner failed to report it as the law required.

Records released Monday reveal that bus company owner Daniel Cobb, who died in the crash Oct. 5, had not reported that bus to highway patrol inspectors even though other buses he owned had been reported and inspected.

The records were released after The Associated Press and other news organizations filed requests under the California Public Records Act.

Investigators are looking into the history of that bus, which also had not been issued a permit by the California Public Utilities Commission and was not authorized to be on the road.
