U.S. to investigate tour bus industry following New York crash

(CNN) -- The National Transportation Safety Board will probe part of the country's tour bus industry in the wake of a deadly crash in New York last month, two lawmakers announced Sunday.

The NTSB will "launch a broad investigation into the entire safety regime that governs the low-cost tour bus industry," Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Nydia Velazquez said.

The two New York Democrats said the decision is the result of their urging following a March 12 accident that killed 15 people.

"March's bus crash was a tragedy for New York, but these passengers did not have to die in vain," Schumer said in a statement Sunday. "A full and comprehensive review of this industry and the safety regulations governing it will no doubt lead to greater safety standards for the thousands of passengers who use these buses every week."
