SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The driver of a Greyhound bus that crashed in the Utah desert on New Year's Eve, killing a 13-year-old girl, remains hospitalized in critical condition.
In addition, Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Steve Salas said Tuesday that the mother of the girl who died also remained hospitalized.
Salas did not have more details about the woman or information about whether 10 other passengers remained hospitalized.
He said investigators removed the wreckage of the bus Monday night and mechanical experts were looking it over in the nearby city of Green River with the hope of learning why the bus crashed.
He did not have further details about the bus driver, including whether the driver had any prior accidents or had suffered a medical problem that led to the accident, as one passenger had reported.
