Union calls for 3rd-party probe of bus crash

The bus drivers' union called Monday for an independent investigation into a weekend CTA bus crash that injured nearly 40 people.

The bus veered off Lake Shore Drive Saturday evening and into a group of trees.

The CTA is conducting an investigation into the cause. But the bus drivers' union said Monday it should be done by a third party to insure the integrity of the findings.

The union also raised questions about the safety of the CTA fleet, saying outside vendors perform some repairs.

A CTA spokesperson released a statement saying, "we have a skilled investigative staff that knows how to conduct a thorough, fair and fact based investigation."
