A spokesperson for Abbot Trailways says the driver of a charter bus that crashed in Richmond on Sunday has been suspended.
The bus was transporting students from Virginia Tech, Radford and UVA when it overturned on the ramp from Powhite Parkway southbound onto Chippenham Parkway. More than 30 of the 51 people on board were injured in the crash. One of them was initially listed in critical condition but has since been upgraded to stable.
A Virginia State Police investigation determined that speed was a factor in the crash. The driver, 58-year-old Thomas Chidester, was then charged with reckless driving.
