24 people, including a recently released ex-con, aboard a tour bus heading for Vegas at night are injured, six even killed, when it suddenly gets out of control and is turned over after hitting medical resident Eric Kevlin's sports car. Only the bus driver survived, either may have caused the crash for a real reason. The bus was also mechanically in unsatisfactory condition, a broken bolt being crucial to the fatal breakdowns-chain, although the company owner had it revised recently, albeit at a cheaper garage. His staff yields an additional suspect. Written by KGF Vissers

CSI:Crime Scene Investigation-Chasing the Bus
24 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A bus careens off a highway because of bad bolts and the result could be chloroform placed in the tire as a means to cause a flat and get the company in trouble. Nine people dead, it'll be up to CSI to find out who and why. A hand print on a rear tire(the person who caused the accident has to use the tire to rear himself up)and a gage which can detect chloroform might just be used to find the one responsible. This episode opens with quite a wallop, introducing us to the passengers as they discuss their lives and future plans, only for a freak bus accident to kill nine of them. This also shows DNA analyst Greg's first time in the field and how it will sow the seed for his upcoming future as a member of the CSI team. There's also a young medical doctor from LA in a Camaro who wanted his girlfriend to come home with him investigated(his car was toppled by the bus). Intriguing look as how saving a few bucks on bolts and retribution of being fired over smoking a joint can lead to such devastating tragedy.
