A Marion County truck driver was recently charged with the death of a school bus rider. The criminal charges stem from a 2008 accident in which the driver of a semi-truck rear ended a school bus that was stopped to let some of its riders off. One of the passengers on the bus, a 13 year old, was killed in the accident and a number of other Marion County children were injured. A preliminary investigation of the accident revealed that the driver of the semi-truck was driving with not enough sleep, may have been distracted by his cell phone, and that the brakes on the truck were faulty. The man has already been served with multiple civil lawsuits from the parents of the deceased child as well as parents of other children who were injured in the accident.
