Chief killed, firefighters hurt after knocked over guardrail by bus driven by driver in US illegally


Dean Schabner, ABC News:

Two people were killed and 41 were injured when a charter bus driven by a man without a license who is in the U.S. illegally crashed into vehicles at the scene of a previous minor accident on Interstate 10 near La Place, according to the Louisiana State Police.

One of the people killed was a district fire chief from the St. John the Baptist Fire Department, Louisiana State Police Trooper Melissa Matey said.

The bus driver, Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, is from the Honduras and is in the U.S. illegally, Matey said.

The people on the bus, which is owned by AM Party Bus/Christina’s Transportation, were “daily hires” who were in the area to do construction and rebuild following the devastating flooding that hit Louisiana, she said.

It is not known who hired the workers, but police believe they are in the U.S. illegally, Matey said.


State troopers and members of the St. John the Baptist Parish Fire Department responded and shut down the roadway. Three firemen were standing between a trooper’s unit and the pickup truck, officials said.

Investigators said a charter bus headed to Baton Rouge was westbound on I-10 when it also lost control, for reasons unknown, and struck the fire department’s ladder truck.

The charter bus came across the right lane when it struck the ladder truck and hit the three firemen, sending them over the guardrail and into the water. One of the firemen was district chief Spencer Chauvin.

Chauvin was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The two other firefighters were injured and have not been identified.

State police said 30-40 people were on the charter bus when it crashed. Each passenger was injured and taken to area hospitals

  1. “Chauvin was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. ”

    And that right there is the difference between an actual real event and a hoax where nobody really dies.

    A entire busload of illegal criminals, huh? Gee, I wonder who contracted them? Obama’s got some splainin to do. But I’m sure he won’t.
    I wonder if the cops and the firefighters will figure out that their masters see them as expendable minions? Probably not.

  2. Is it just me, or has anyone else ever noticed how it seems as if they send cops to some kind of special school where they are taught to speak in a manner that makes them sound like some kind of automated, computer generated talking robot?

    Maybe they are robots. Androids, sort of like in the movie Blade Runner.

    Very few cops sound like a regular human when they are talking into a camera.

  3. Collateral damage in the eyes of the elite
    it is their policies that brought this together and caused this to happen
    yet , none will reap any punishment for it ..,,,, yet

    there will come a day when all these illegals that have been allowed to infiltrate , one of them is going to do something to effect a “dignitary ” and thats when its going to matter ..when one of the 1%ers has their kid killed because of this stupidity ,, thats when it will make a difference ..and when i will say Karma came to visit before Darwin called

  4. This is tragic.
    Your telling me that there’s a job position open for driving slaves to the plantation.
    What’s next…..
    A bunch of Chinese burning up in a fiery crash on a tourist bus coming back from the Grand Canyon on a Korean chartered bus back to Vegas. ..?
