No homi­cide in fa­tal bus crash

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

A bus driver ac­cused of be­ing so tired that he caused one of the dead­li­est crashes in New York City’s his­tory was found not guilty of manslaugh­ter and neg­li­gent homi­cide Fri­day.

Ophadell Wil­liams was found guilty on one count of ag­gra­vated un­li­censed op­er­a­tion of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle. Wil­liams wept and cov­ered his face with his hands as the ver­dict was read. On the count which he was found guilty, the judge sen­tenced him to 30 days in prison, which he has served. He also was or­dered to pay a fee of $500.
