Bus driver distraction probed

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Investigators are looking into whether the driver of a tour bus might have become distracted before a deadly crash that killed seven people.

Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Lt. James Warriner says three survivors of Friday's crash near Hoover Dam have been interviewed.

He says they indicated that the driver might have been distracted. Warriner would not elaborate on what those distractions might have been or whether they played a role in the crash.

He says investigators have yet to interview the driver, who remains in fair condition at University Medical Center in Las Vegas, about 70 miles northwest of the crash site.

Nine others were injured in the crash along U.S. 93 in Arizona.
