A federal safety report reveals the bus that crashed on a Kentucky interstate and injured more than 30 students had tires taken from a scrap bin. It was also revealed that the maintenance and inspection records for the bus had been burned. The report was read in discovery in two lawsuits against Commonwealth Bus Service, which operated the bus in the June accident.
The report led to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) placing the bus company on probation. The Courier-Journal has filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the federal safety administration for copies of the full report. Jefferson County Public Schools has temporarily halted its use of the bus service.
