Kin Yiu Cheung, driver in fatal Va. bus crash to appear in court
BOWLING GREEN, Va. (AP) - A driver for a discount bus service whose bus crashed on Interstate 95 in Virginia, killing four people and injuring others, is set to appear in court.
Kin Yiu Cheung is scheduled to appear in Caroline County court Friday. The 37-year-old from New York is charged with misdemeanor reckless driving in the May crash. Those killed were four adult females from New York, Philadelphia and New Jersey.
Court records show Cheung admitted to police that he fell asleep at the wheel when the Sky Express bus bound for New York overturned about 30 miles north of Richmond with 60 people aboard. His attorneys have called the crash a "tragic accident."
Cheung is set to go on trial in January on four felony counts of involuntary manslaughter.
