State police and transportation officials are cracking down on tour bus drivers in the aftermath of a deadly crash on I-95 this past weekend.

Meanwhile the DMV has suspended the license of Orphadel Williams, the man behind the wheel of the tour bus when it tipped over, killing 15 people on Saturday.
