That bus crash

Posted By on Tue, Jul 10, 2007 at 5:33 PM

That woman passenger who caused the crash of a Greyhound on I-40 yesterday? She'll be in the State Hospital for a few days, State Police news release says. (It's on the jump.) Not much further enlightenment, though it's intriguing if Greyhound security officers escorted the woman onto the bus in Nashville. So desperate for fares that they'll hustle a disturbed person aboard? Leave the driving to us, indeed.

STATE POLICE NEWS RELEASE

Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division today questioned a woman who was onboard a Greyhound Bus yesterday (Monday, July 9th) in Lonoke County when she allegedly attempted to take control of the bus from its driver and causing the bus to veer off Interstate 40 and crash.

The woman has identified herself to the Arkansas State Police as Victoria Combs, age 27.  The woman has not been specific as to her legal residence other than to say she is from Oklahoma.  Further investigation to confirm the woman’s identity is underway.

Presently the woman is being examined at the State Hospital and is expected to remain there for at least one week.

Meanwhile, the Arkansas State Police is continuing to determine exactly where along the route of the bus the woman boarded and under what circumstances she may have gotten onto the bus.  Passengers have stated she was escorted onto the bus by law enforcement personnel.  Late today Nashville Police officials reported that a woman possibly matching the description of the individual in Arkansas was seen being escorted onto the bus in Nashville by Greyhound Security Officers.

Arkansas State Police will await a report from the State Hospital before consulting with Lonoke County prosecutors whether to charge the woman in connection with the bus crash.
