The 48-year-old driver of a charter bus that crashed into an overpass at an airport in Miami and killed three passengers has been charged with reckless driving and three counts of felony vehicular homicide. The man, who was released on bond on Nov. 28, claims he did nothing wrong and that what happened was an accident.
The incident underlying the charges occurred in December 2013 when the driver got lost and ended up at the airport while driving a charter bus carrying 31 passengers to a Jehovah's Witness assembly. According to the arrest warrant, the 12-foot-tall bus was traveling at a speed of more than twice the posted limit when it crashed into an airport overpass with a 10-foot clearance. One passenger on the bus died at the scene, and two others later died from their injuries.
