We were waiting for the verdict in the case of Ophadell Williams, the driver of the casino bus that crashed in the Bronx last year, killing 15 Chinatown residents. A short time ago the jury announced it had found him not guilty on all counts of manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide. He was convicted on one count: aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
Federal regulators concluded that driver fatigue was a factor in the crash, on I-95 in March of 2012. They also found Williams had been speeding. The bus was heading back from a casino in Connecticut. Williams claimed he was cut off by a tractor-trailer and was forced to swerve.
