Mason County couple among 12 people killed in tourist bus crash in Mexico
SEATTLE -- An assistant principal at Sand Hill Elementary School in Belfair and her husband were among the 12 people killed on a tourist bus crash in Mexico as they traveled from cruise ships to visit nearby Mayan ruins, North Mason School District Superintendent Dana Rosenbach said Wednesday. Quintana Roo state prosecutors said a preliminary manslaughter investigation indicated the driver was speeding when he lost control of the bus and when he tried to get back on the narrow highway, the bus flipped, struck a tree and landed in vegetation along the roadside.
