SYRACUSE— A bus driver was acquitted Tuesday of homicide in the deaths of four passengers killed when his double-decker crashed into an overpass.
A judge announced the verdict after a non-jury trial for
60-year-old John Tomaszewski of Yardville, N.J. Tomaszewski would have
faced up to four years in state prison on each of four counts of
criminally negligent homicide.
He sat with his head bowed and showed no reaction as Onondaga County Court Judge Anthony Aloi read the verdict.
