Highway and Road DisastersTransportation DisastersUniversity of Missouri

For the second time in a week, it appears a tire on a Megabus popped on a major interstate.

A bus was on its way from Atlanta to Charlotte when one of its tires apparently blew. As the bus tried to stop, it burst into flames.

All of the passengers were able to hurry off the bus safely.     

Just last Thursday, a Megabus crashed on Interstate 55 near Litchfield, Ill. A graduate student at the University of Missouri was killed, and more than 30 passengers were hurt.

State police believe the bus also blew a tire, but are still investigating.
