NEW YORK (AP) — A 15th victim has died after a tour bus crashed on a New York City highway in a horrific weekend accident.

Police say a 70-year-old man died from his injuries at about 7:30 a.m. Monday. His name and the names of 14 other victims haven't been released. Several injured passengers remained hospitalized Monday, most in critical condition.

The bus slid into a sign pole that sheared it end to end in a gruesome scene of blood, jumbled bodies and shattered glass.

The National Transportation Safety Board initially said cameras faced passengers but later determined the camera was pointed outside the bus. It is also examining an engine control module that may indicate how fast the bus was going.
