Tennessee Bus Driver Had Another Accident Two Months Prior To Fatal Crash
Johnthony Walker is likely going to go to jail for a long time for the deaths of 5 children who were riding on his school bus on Monday. We’re almost positive that at some point during the trial that prosecutors will be discussing a previous accident that he was involved in.
ABCNews is reporting that just 2 months ago, Walker was found responsible for another crash while he was at the wheel of his school bus.
Johnthony Walker, 24, was driving a bus for Durham School Services — the same as in the fatal crash — when he sideswiped an oncoming Kia Soul in September after crossing into oncoming traffic while attempting to negotiate a “blind curve,” according to the crash report.
There were no injuries, according to the crash report, and children were seated in the rear rows.
No charges were filed in that incident, but a citation for failure to yield was issued. It was unclear if Durham took any action against Walker after that collision.
Not even the ghost of Johnny Cochran could save this dude. Can’t even believe anyone allowed a 24-year-old to be a school bus driver. SMH. Where did he get his bus license? Six Flags???
