The bus driver involved in a bus crash last month in Becket, Massachusetts has received a $50 moving violation for “negligent operation.” In other words, driving too fast for the road conditions, which were slick with ice at the time of the accident.
The 63-year-old bus driver was transporting the River Rats hockey team home after a game in Lowell, Massachusetts. The bus hit an icy patch of road on the Massachusetts Turnpike and crashed around 2:30am. Several teammates were injured as a result of the bus accident.
The driver’s personal driver’s license record lists two motor vehicle accidents in 2006 and 2007. No charges were filed in this case.
