RCMP determine Edmonton-area transit bus OK before frightening crash

Mechanical failure, road conditions and the weather are being ruled out as factors in the crash of a transit bus near Edmonton this week.

ST. ALBERT — Mechanical failure, road conditions and the weather are being ruled out as factors in the crash of a transit bus near Edmonton this week.

On Tuesday evening, a bus operated by St. Albert Transit slammed through two yards on the city’s west side before hitting a deck.

There were no passengers and no one in either house was injured.

The driver suffered minor injuries and was treated at hospital.

Mounties said at the time that there was some indication of steering problems before the crash.

They’re still investigating the cause but now say a vehicle inspection has shown no sign of mechanical trouble, and that the bus was in good repair at the time of the collision. (The Canadian Press)
