Two people are dead after a tour bus traveling from Manhattan to Philadelphia crashed Monday night on the New Jersey Turnpike. The crash comes just days after a tour bus crashed in the Bronx, killing 15 people.

Authorities do not yet know the cause of this most recent crash, which killed the bus driver and another male passenger. They say about 40 other passengers were sent to area hospitals; at least five people were critically injured.

The bus was operated by the Pennsylvania-based company, Super Luxury Tours.
