NOTES: Fatal bus crashes involve school buses, cross country/inter-city buses, transit buses, van-based bus with gross vehicle weight rating greater than 10,000 lbs. and other/unknown bus types. The Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) Crash File is a census of trucks and buses involved in crashes, however some States do not report all eligible crashes.
