Tourists flocks to the United States every year. This includes the areas of the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. An Arizona tour bus crash ended the life of 7 tourists from China. It was reported that the bus driver was driving and over-corrected a turn which caused the bus to roll multiple times. The bus was owned by D.W. Tours.
