Bus Driver who was Driving During an Accident on Thursday has a History of Accidents

A bus crash in Texas on Thursday has brought to light a bad driving record for said bus driver. 15 years ago, he was not indicted in a fatal accident according to new court documents that have been released.

The bus crash caused dozens of injuries and two deaths. The charter bus had overturned and flipped over in Dallas on the President George Bush Turnpike. Lloyd Rieve, 65-years-old, was driving the bus at the time. In an unrelated incident, he was almost charged with criminally negligent homicide for that fatal accident that occurred in 1998.

Rieve had run over a person who was assisting victims at another accident scene. This accident involved only one vehicle and the driver was not majorly injured, but did sustain some injuries stemming from the accident.

The bus apparently went off the right side of the road and hit a barrier, which caused it to swerve left and trample multiple lanes of traffic. It landed in a grassy area in the concrete median after it smashed into that.

The vehicle is owned by C ardinal Coach Line which takes passengers from Chocotaw Casino in Oklahoma.  Investigators are expecting a long and drawn out probe into the accident as two investigators were sent by the National Transportation Safety Board to the scene and different reasons are being discussed. The cause has not yet been determined.
