Roanoke City Council members said a prayer for the van accident victims, and considered the safety of the city's own vehicles yesterday. Council approved plans to lease a 15- passenger van , but not before members raised concerns about safety.
The city currently has one active 15- passenger van, and one 16- passenger van.
In the future, officials say they will consider whether larger vehicles would better serve the city's needs.
