Passenger speaks out after surviving bus crash on Highway 101 in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- With his head wrapped in bandages, Marco Zorzi spoke with ABC7 News about the bus crash, minutes after being released from Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.

"I remember we were dancing on the road and then suddenly fell to one side then I forgot everything," said Bus passenger, Marco Zorzi.

Zorzi was on board the private charter bus, carrying passengers from San Francisco to Palo Alto for a holiday party Friday, when the bus lost control on hospital curve on southbound Highway 101.

"The bus flipped over on my side, I'm very lucky," said Zorzi.

Zorzi escaped the bus. He and 28 of his fellow passenger were taken to local hospitals, along with the driver of the charter. As of Saturday night, only two passengers remained hospitalized at San Francisco General in fair condition.

"The bus driver was not impaired at the time of the collision," said Officer Vu Williams from the California highway patrol.

Williams said the wrecked bus was towed to an evidence yard where it will be inspected for possible mechanical failure.

"We will look at everything including if speed was a factor," Williams added.

The bus is owned by Charter Brothers. It's a family-owned company that advertises more than 20-years of experience.

The company conducts charters for corporate events, schools, weddings and field trips.

The company's website says its buses can transport up to 56 passengers.
