That is very trajic news but what in the world were 18 people doing traveling in one vehicle? I really feel bad for everyone involved.

So very tragic and scary. It reminds us all how important it is to stay vigilant while driving our motorhomes (RV's). Life can change in an instant.

Were all 18 in the coach? If so it was overloaded by a wide margin. A 17 year old does not have the experience to make good decisions while driving such a vehicle.
