Greyhound Lines, Inc. had a serious accident near Jackson, Tennessee on Interstate 40 involving the second bus on schedule number 1527 with 22 passengers on board. The highway patrol has confirmed that fatalities occurred.

Greyhound extends its deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased passengers and the deceased driver. Whenever members of the Greyhound family – passengers or employees – are involved in a serious incident, it touches everyone at Greyhound.

While it is too soon to know the cause of the accident, we are working with the Tennessee Highway Patrol on the investigation and have launched an investigation of our own. We are also working hard to take care of our passengers and their families.
