Bus Carrying Jehovah’s Witnesses Crashes at Miami International Airport By Tod Aronovitz | 12/03/12 | 0 Comment

Two passengers were killed and more than 30 injured when a bus transporting Jehovah’s Witnesses took a wrong turn into the Miami International Airport on Saturday morning and hit an overpass.

The 11-foot tall bus allegedly drove past several airport signs warning vehicles over eight feet, six inches high to take an alternate route. The bus struck a low concrete overpass, causing the top of the bus to peel back. One 86-year old Miami passenger was killed on impact, and a second Miami resident died at Jackson Memorial’s Ryder Trauma Center. All 31 passengers were taken to local hospitals.

The bus was headed to a conference at the Christian Convention Center in West Palm Beach. The driver of the bus was not injured.

The Miami Herald has more details in an article titled, “Two dead after bus crash at Miami International Airport.”

The bus belongs to Miami Bus Service Corporation, a Miami company owned by Mayling and Alberto Hernandez, reports the Miami Herald. The company began service in 1998, according to its website, after establishing a popular route between the University of Florida and South Florida. The company’s fleet now includes 53 passenger coach buses.
