In the state of New York, a serious bus accident occurred on March 12, 2011. Now, federal officers spearheading investigations say that the driver of the bus may not have slept as much as he claimed in the days leading up to last year's crash. Recently, documents were released by the National Transportation Safety Board that showed the driver, O.W., had used his cell phone and rental car continuously days before the collision during morning and afternoon hours. Originally, he claimed that he had been sleeping at those times, but investigators found oppositional data via his phone records.
The bus accident occurred as the vehicle was heading back to Manhattan's Chinatown from a Connecticut casino trip. As a result of the crash, fifteen people lost their lives. O.W. is now facing charges of manslaughter and negligent homicide and has entered a plea of "not guilty".
