(Newser) – Another major bus accident in the news: A Greyhound bus went off an interstate in Ohio overnight and ended up on its side in a cornfield, reports AP. The most recent account says 34 of the 52 people aboard were taken to hospitals, though the Cincinnati Enquirer says none of the injuries are life-threatening. Two people, including the driver, had to be cut from the wreck by firefighters. The bus went off Interstate 75 just before 4am en route from Cincinnati to Detroit. Police say it hit a tree and a fence before overturning. The cause is under investigation.

I feel sorry for Greyhound. When Laidlaw took over they bought the cheapest buses that constantly broke down. Whenever I saw an old 3000 bus I cheered and explained to my fellow riders that they never break-down!!!! When Northeastern took over from Laidlaw, they had a lot of buses to fix up and that cost a lot of money. Eventually the "dark paint" buses began to run well, not as good as Burlington Trailways and Jefferson Lines of course, but MUCH better. Then came along the Coach USA entry with their creation of MegaBus run by cohort traitors a Greyhound Vice President and a Greyhound General Manager I think it was, and they went after Greyhound with a cruel vengeance. All of a sudden those STUPID DUMB university stewdints flocked for a ride that their dumb-ass brains should have told them was an unfair price which SHOULD BE ILLEGAL - - it was illegal for Pacific Intermountain Express to charge under-cost rates for their semi-trucks and went out of business due to government fines... why not MegaBus ??????? Until Mega-bus Greyhound offered four classes of service nationwide which all four classes of service fed each other in an inter-connected symbiotic fashion: Greyhound offered LOCAL, INTERCITY, INTERSTATE, and EXPRESS bus service... Megabus offers NONE of that! Try taking a Megabus to Peoria Illinois or to Springfield Missouri! They do not go there! Megabus only goes to pin-point prime locations and avoids the rest of the highly-popular cities to cut Greyhound out of their prime fare revenues! So now Greyhound does not go any longer into Des Moines Iowa - - Greyhound sold their bus station even! Megabus is in business to do one thing and one thing only -- to destroy the very low-profit national bus system. Northeastern was doing a very excellent job of rebuilding Greyhound Lines ... only to be shot in the stomach by a Megacheating bus system that sells $24 tickets with $1 transfer fees for buses requiring $1500 of fuel not to mention the bus drivers' wages and clerical and mechanical staff wages! Those stupid dumb modern-generation people who cannot see that Greyhound BEFORE Megabus charged a ticket CHEAPER than you can drive your car for! But greed always rules... just like the assholes who support Chinese military factories and U.S. employee poverty wages by going to Mal-Wart!!!!

Most likely the driver went to sleep.
