Bus Driver in Deadly Crash Charged with Manslaughter

Posted on June 7, 2011 to

Kin Yiu Cheung, the 37-year-old bus driver from Flushing, NY, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the aftermath of the Virginia bus accident that killed four passengers and injured more than 50 others.

Authorities cite fatigue as the cause of the crash. Cheung was driving a Sky Express bus on I-95 from Greensboro to New York City when he swerved off the highway during the early morning and hit an embankment.

Sky Express has a history of safety violations, and at the time of the accident, Sky Express was on the verge of a shutdown by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The company had no comment with regard to the charges against Cheung.
