The family of Kang Yu-hsun (康育薰), a driver who was killed along with 32 tourists in a bus crash on Monday, yesterday condemned a travel agency for overworking him.

The travel agency dismissed the accusations, claiming that Kang had received sufficient rest before the fatal trip.

Kang had been the driver during a one-day cherry blossom sightseeing tour organized by Tieh Lien Hua Travels (蝶戀花旅行社) to Wuling Farm in Greater Taichung.

On the return trip, his bus overturned while banking left on an exit ramp off the side of another exit ramp connecting National Freeway No. 5 to southbound lanes of National Freeway No. 3. The crash injured 11 and killed 33 including the driver.   [FULL  STORY]
