GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado State Patrol hasn't decided yet whether to charge the driver of a commuter bus that crashed near Carbondale on Saturday.
Eleven people were injured, three seriously, when the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority bus crashed on Colorado Highway 82. Driver Jaime Nunez swerved to avoid rear-ending a slow-moving tractor.
State trooper Nate Reid told The Daily Sentinel that investigators will analyze a device on the bus that records its speed. The transit authority's CEO, Dan Blankenship, said data from the transit authority's global-positioning system put Nunez's speed at 62 miles per hour just before the crash, below the 65 miles per hour speed limit.
Blankenship says Nunez has been placed on paid administrative leave and is very concerned about the well-being of his passengers.
