Sky Express Incorporated, a tour bus company based out of North Carolina, can no longer stay in business. The Department of Transportation has issued an out-of-service order to the company, citing numerous safety violations.

In a statement, the department says it found numerous violations after a review of the business; violations of driver qualification requirements, vehicle maintenance, and drug and alcohol violations.

A Sky Express bus headed from North Carolina to New York City flipped over on I-95 north of Richmond Tuesday morning, killing four people and injuring dozens of others. Virginia State Police say driver fatigue was a factor in the crash and they have charged the Sky Express bus driver with reckless driving.
