FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Investigators have determined that a Greyhound bus driver involved in a Fresno crash that left six people dead was not on his cell phone at the time.
The Fresno Bee reports that a California Highway Patrol review of James Jewett’s cell phone records shows that he was not on the phone at the time of the July collision.
Jewett and five others were killed when the bus, carrying 32 people, struck an overturned sport utility vehicle on Highway 99.
The crash sent the bus, SUV and a nearby Honda tumbling over an embankment. Three people in the SUV died, as did two bus passengers.
Authorities determined in the days after the accident that the 18-year-old SUV driver, Sylvia Garay, was legally drunk when her vehicle overturned.
