  • Nine people died and 38 were injured in this Dec. 30 bus crash on Interstate 84.

The same Vancouver-based bus company—Mi Joo Tour—that has been ordered off of U.S. highways in the wake of the Dec. 30 crash on an icy stretch of I-84 that killed nine and injured 38 more, has now also been banned from Canadian roads.

The U.S. Department of Transportation revoked Mi Joo Tour's authority to provide passenger service in the United States, pending a full investigation into the crash.

And now, the Associated Press reports that Canada's Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure determined Mi Joo Tour wasn't "following British Columbia law regarding pre-trip inspections and driver hours of service." The suspension of bus operations was effective immediately.
