Reports are claiming that a 77-year-old driver behind the wheel of the school bus that crashed last week is now facing charges. 

Hudy Muldrow Sr. was charged with two counts of death by auto in the May 17 crash on State Route 80 that left 10-year-old Miranda Vargas and teacher Jennifer Williamson Kennedy dead. These two people were killed after a full-size school bus collided with a dump truck on Route 80 near exit 25 in Mount Olive Township. Video and picture evidence shows the school bus filled with fifth-graders making a sudden U-turn in a median. This is when the school bus and the dump truck made their deadly collision. 

The school bus driver from the deadly May 17 highway crash in New Jersey had, according to ABC New York, a terrible history of license suspensions and moving violations, according to NBC New York

The bus was carrying a total of 38 students and seven adults during the incident. The bus was heading from East Brooks Middle School in Paramus to a class field trip in Waterloo Village.

The driver of the school bus first had his license suspended in 1975. Throughout the course of his life, he has had 14 license suspensions, 8 speeding tickets, a careless driving ticket, and a ticket for an improper turn in 2010. The most recent suspension was from December 20 of last year to January 3 of this year for unpaid parking tickets.

NBC New York writes that the driver had a commercial driver's license issued in 2012 and got the school bus endorsement on his commercial driver's license in 2013.

All lanes were quickly shut down after the incident, in order to permit police and paramedics to respond to the scene. Several people were treated for injuries on the spot, while many others were sent to the local hospital.
