According to an official CHP report delivered to the Colusa County district attorney, the driver involved in a fatal Colusa County bus crash was exhausted and dozing off at the wheel.
The case is in review to determine whether criminal charges will be pressed against the driver. The driver could be charged with either a felony or a misdemeanor.
The crash occured on October 5th near the town of Williams, north of Sacramento. The casino-bound charter bus veered off a narrow rural road into a ditch. The crash killed ten people and injured 33, including the driver.
The report indicates that the crash was caused by extreme driver fatigue. Eyewitness accounts say that the company’s owner, who died in the crash, grabbed the wheel in a futile effort to avoid crashing.
We here at the law offices of Moseley Collins send our deepest sympathies to the families who lost loved ones in the crash.
