New Details Released In Deadly Bus Crash

We're learning more about a bus crash that killed two people in western Kentucky.

Investigators now say the motor coach company's owner may have been cutting corners.

Investigators say the tags on the bus were expired and registered to another bus.

It was built to handle 55 people, but according to reports, 66 were on the bus at the time of the crash.

Investigators also say the driver, who died in the crash, was not taking proper sleep breaks as required by federal law.

The driver and another woman died after the bus slammed into a concrete pillar on I-65 in Warren County earlier this week.
