“My thoughts and prayers go out to all those injured in the horrific bus crash along Interstate 95. I want to especially offer my deepest condolences to the families of the 14 people who lost their lives. This is a terrible tragedy and I trust that a full investigation will be done by officials to determine the exact cause of the crash. I hope that this was an isolated accident and that an incident like this never happens again.”
