Bus Company Loses License

An Alabama bus company that was involved in a fatal crash in June 2007 has lost its license to transport passengers.

A review by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration found problems that resulted in C&R Tours receiving an unsatisfactory rating and losing its rating to cross state lines.

The company did not correct the problems as required within 45 days, resulting in the loss of its license.

Regulators didn’t release specific findings about the company, but a spokeswoman said such reviews include checks of records, insurance, drug and alcohol testing procedures and mechanical operations.

An investigation by Kentucky State Police showed a C&R bus was overcrowded and lacked proper registration when it crashed on Interstate 65 on June 25, killing a passenger and the driver.
