EDINBURGH, Ind. — The driver of a Megabus has been cited for speeding in a crash last week in which the bus collided with a tractor-trailer rig on Interstate 65 in central Indiana.

Indiana State Police also said Tuesday that the bus showed no signs of mechanical problems. Of the 63 passengers on the bus, 19 were injured, though all of the injuries were non-life-threatening. The crash occurred April 13 near Edinburgh, in Johnson County, about 35 miles south of Indianapolis.

It was the fourth Megabus crash in Indiana since October. The report also found the bus had the incorrect U.S. Department of Transportation number.

The driver, 50-year-old Kimberly Lane, of Dolton, Ill., was cited for “speed too fast for conditions.” State police say Megabus willingly turned over maintenance logs and other data.

A Megabus spokesman didn’t immediately respond to an email seeing comment.
