Driver in Deadly Bronx Bus Crash Has Driving Privileges Suspended
Thursday, March 17, 2011
The driver of the long distance bus involved in a deadly crash last weekend lied on applications for his driver's license, according to the governor's office.
Ophadell Williams allegedly used different names to apply for a number of licenses, even after one of those licenses was suspended, Director of State Operations, Howard Glaser, said.
Glaser also said Williams' driving privileges have been suspended indefinitely.
Fifteen people died in the crash on Interstate-95 early Saturday morning. The bus was returning to Manhattan's Chinatown from an overnight trip to a Connecticut casino.
New York state police said their detectives, as well as investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board, are in New York City Thursday questioning first responders.
Williams was interviewed earlier this week.
