14 passengers were killed in bus crash in NYC

On Saturday night, a serious bus crash killed 14 people when the bus was returning to Manhattan's Chinatown after a quick overnight trip to the Mohegan Sun casino.
According to the Huffington Post, the official said the passengers said they didn't feel anything hit on them and they didn't see the bus get hit either. The driver Ophadell Williams remained hospitalized in stable condition Sunday and about 20 passengers were treated at hospitals at St. Barnabas Hospital and Jacobi Medical Center. Most of them were in critical condition.
The New York Times reported the driver told the authorities that his bus was clipped by a passing tractor-trailer, which sped away, but police assert that it was under investigation. Many of victims are older Asian and Hispanic people. Some of the 31 passengers were still asleep when the bus crashed.
The crash had a devastating effect in the Chinese community in New York. They said if they did not know someone on the bus, they feared that they did, the New York Times reported.
