Driver Ophadell Williams had told police that his World Wide Tours bus was hit just as it crossed the New York City line early Saturday on a trip from the Mohegan Sun casino in in Connecticut.
But passengers said Williams had already swerved at times to the right for no reason before the accident, a law-enforcement official said Sunday. The official wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the probe and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Sad to think this is looking more and more to have happened because of a reckless bus driver.
This is all my students were talking about this morning. Yeesh.
15th person died this morning.
