Tour Bus Rollover Near Lake George Injures 22

A tour bus carrying passengers rolled over on Interstate 87 near Lake George Village in upstate New York on Friday afternoon, injuring approximately 22 people, some critically. The crash occurred around 1 PM and closed the southbound side of the highway as first responders rushed to the scene. Some injured passengers were airlifted to area hospitals.

This disturbing incident highlights the dangers motorists face daily on our roadways. Though tour buses are generally very safe, rollover accidents can happen suddenly if the vehicle hits a ditch or embankment or has a blowout. And when a large vehicle like a bus flips, the results are almost always serious injuries or worse due to the height and weight.

All motorists should drive defensively and avoid distractions, and passengers can try to sit near exits in case of emergency. Though we commend the rapid and thorough response by first responders here, we hope increased safety measures and driver awareness can help prevent future tragedies like this.

Our thoughts go out to the injured victims as we closely monitor this still-developing situation near the popular Adirondack vacation destination of Lake George. The recent rollover accident on Interstate 87 near Lake George Village is a stark reminder of the unpredictable nature of road travel.
