Bond Hearing For Bus Crash Driver Postponed
The bond hearing scheduled for June 8, 2011 in the case of Kin Yiu Cheung, the bus driver charged with four counts of manslaugter arising from the deaths of four passengers in the recent I-95 bus crash that also injured dozens of other passengers, was postponed today by a Virginia judge. The bond hearing was to determine whether Mr. Cheung was a flight risk. The hearing was continued until June 15th to allow Mr. Cheung to produce a passport.
Authorities claim that Cheung was fatigued when the bus he was driving drove off the road, hit an embankment and flipped over, and injured scores of passengers and led to the deaths of four of those passengers. The May 31st crash occurred about 30 miles north of Richmond, VA. Mr. Cheung is being held without bond.
