A very serious bus crash on US Interstate 95 near Fayetteville, North Carolina has resulted in two deaths and multiple serious injuries. The crash happened late Saturday evening when a bus traveling to New York ran off the road and struck a tree at around 10:00 p.m. The bus was apparently traveling from Florida and had a total of 14 people inside.
The victims include Rafael Perez from Yonkers, New York and Louis Alfarodo from the Bronx, New York who were both killed in the crash. Multiple other victims were hospitalized with serious injuries including the driver who is in critical condition.
