A terrible bus crash in Louisiana today results in the death of two people and dozens more injured. The local fire chief who was responding to an earlier accident was one of those killed when the out of control bus collided with the fire engine.
Louisiana – State Police told Fox 8 firefighters responding to the earlier crash were attempting to close Interstate 10 just west of New Orleans when the bus lost control for unknown reasons and struck a fire engine on scene.
The bus then struck three firefighters, throwing them from the elevated portion of the interstate over the guard rail and into the water below.
Among those killed Sunday morning included a local fire chief, District Chief Spencer Chauvin with the St. John the Baptist Fire Department, Matey said.
Louisiana State Police said that there were 30-40 passengers on the bus, all of which suffered minor to moderate injuries. Matey described the bus passengers as a group of volunteers heading from New Orleans to Baton Rouge to help flood victims. (read more)

However, what most national media (including this NBC report, although they do hint at it) do not reveal, is the fact the bus driver was an illegal alien with no valid drivers license.
[…] Louisiana State Police said the bus driver, Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, did not have a driver’s license and was not licensed to drive a commercial vehicle. A public information officer said he was from Honduras and in the U.S. illegally. (link)
Terribly sad, and unfortunately like so many other incidents that have been noted, completely avoidable if we just had stronger controls on immigration.
Having followed the immigration crisis, and especially the Obama administrations approach toward funding illegal immigration, there’s almost a guaranteed scenario here where the bus, driver and volunteers all stem from a faith-based charity group like Baptist Children and Family Services, or Catholic Charities.

The same faith-based charity that provided the volunteers relief effort, most likely also provided the illegal aliens with safe harbor – and it’s almost certain all of this was paid for with tax payer funds.
