The Pennsylvania Turnpike has partnered with 511PA to help drivers stay safe. The service helps people plan ahead by giving them an accurate listing of transit delays and possible road closures. The ECM, which controls the vehicle’s speed/steering input, was taken out by the state police. It is unclear if there were any passengers in the bus, but it is an essential part of determining how to proceed safely. In the meantime, drivers should plan an alternate route to avoid the accident.

The second vehicle’s driver had lost control of his vehicle while driving and crashed into a guardrail on the shoulder of the road. It flipped over and landed in the right lane on its roof. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Emergency personnel checked both drivers, including Stieber, and determined he had a compound fracture.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), seat belts could have saved the passengers and the driver of the bus. It is unclear whether seat belts were used by the passengers. The agency has started an investigation. Although seat belts are not required for coaches, they may have prevented the accident. According to state police the accident is the worst turnpike crash since the 1980s. Therefore, it might be a good idea for drivers to wear a seatbelt when driving on the highway.
