LAS VEGAS (AP) - The California Public Utilities Commission has suspended certification for a company that owned a charter tour bus
that crashed on an Arizona highway last week, killing seven Chinese
tourists.

The commission's Web site did not say Monday why D.W. Tour & Charter of San Gabriel, Calif., was suspended. Commission officials
did not immediately respond to messages.

The lead federal investigator for the crash says the company owns two buses and employs four drivers.

He says it passed its last federal review in August 2007.

But the company was faulted six months earlier for deficiencies in drug and alcohol testing and policies for checking drivers' backgrounds.
