NC Man Charged In Va. Bus Wreck That Killed 4

A North Carolina bus dispatcher is facing involuntary manslaughter charges in Virginia for his role in a bus crash that killed four passengers in May.

The Free Lance-Star of Fredericksburg reports that 40-year-old Zhao Jian Chen of Greensboro, N.C. was arrested on Friday.

Chen is the second Sky Express employee facing charges. The bus driver, Kin Yiu Cheung of New York, has also been charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Court records show Cheung admitted to police that he fell asleep at the wheel when the low-fare bus from Greensboro, N.C., to New York City swerved off Interstate 95 about 30 miles north of Richmond, hit an embankment and overturned.

Caroline Commonwealth's Attorney Tony Spencer says Cheung told Chen he was too tired to drive, but Chen ordered him to anyway.
