Driver Convicted In Fatal Crash Of North Carolina Bus

The driver in a Virginia bus crash last year that killed four passengers and injured dozens more has been convicted of four counts of manslaughter.

Caroline County Circuit Judge Joseph Ellis told Kin Yiu Cheung on Thursday that his conduct was "so gross and wanton," he had no choice but to find him guilty of all four counts.

Caroline County prosecutors called 15 witnesses, including several passengers on the low-fare Sky Express bus from Greensboro, N.C., to New York.

They described erratic driving, including weaving and repeatedly speeding up and slowing down, before the bus swerved off the road, hit an embankment and overturned. The crash happened in May 2011 on Interstate 95 about 30 miles north of Richmond.

Cheung faces up to 10 years in prison for each count.
