Bus accident kills 2, injures 42 in New Jersey

A bus accident along the New Jersey Turnpike near East Brunswick killed two people and injured 42 others Monday night, state police said.

The 50-year-old bus driver was killed when he was ejected through the front window, according to Sgt. Stephen Jones. A second person died at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Brunswick. Five others are in the hospital's trauma unit.

The "driver for some reason lost control ... struck a guide rail and a concrete abutment," Jones said.

    No seat belts on public transportation here in El Paso. As a matter of fact Ive never seen seat belts on a bus any where Ive ever ridden. So it cant be a fed law.
