Authorities say the tour bus was headed north to Sugarbush and Stowe. The driver, Darnell Hannah, 59, of Millstone, N.J., was killed when the vehicle crested a hill and careened into the guard rails and the trailer on Route 22 A in West Haven on Friday night.

Police say the trucking company was JP Logistics, and the tractor-trailer was hauling K-cup coffee products, and was headed south on the highway.
