Investigators probing the van crash that killed six passengers and injured six others said the tour company that owned the van apparently had none of the required government permits and that records of vehicles and drivers could not be found by an inspector who visited the firm's Los Angeles office Thursday. "All we found were empty file folders," said Sandra Browne, a National Transportation Safety Board investigator based in Los Angeles. "There were no records on buses or drivers."

California Highway Patrol authorities said Friday that a tour van involved in a crash that killed six Korean-Americans and injured six others appeared to be mechanically sound and that the accident may have been the result of "driver error." "We have an accident here caused by no identifiable factor other than the driver," said Capt. Robert Hayworth, of the CHP's Barstow office. "Whether he fell asleep, was inattentive or had some physical problem, we do not know at this time."
