What Likely Caused Horrific Bus Crash In Hudson Valley

A faulty front tire is likely the cause of the crash, according to New York Gov. Kathy Hochul.

"While it's preliminary, it is likely that a faulty front tire contributed to the accident. Although, again, this is still under investigation. That's a preliminary determination," Hochul said during a Thursday evening press conference.

"I do want to acknowledge some incredible people who put on their uniforms every day, are there in our time of need ... And the countless fire and rescue departments that showed up literally running into danger, uncertain as to whether or not that bus could explode or whether they'd be safe. But they never questioned. They just respond, and we owe them our gratitude every single day," Hocul added.
