A Staten Island, New York man has been charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection with Tuesday morning’s fatal commercial bus crash in Prince George Co. Va. The bus driver, Yui Man Chow, 40, of Staten Island, N.Y., is currently being held on bond at Riverside Regional Jail in Prince George County, Va.
The crash occurred Tuesday (March 19) at approximately 5:22 a.m. when a Tao’s Travel Inc. bus overturned at the on-ramp for Exit 45. The bus was headed north on I-95 when it attempted to take the exit ramp. The vehicle ended up running off the left side of the ramp and overturned. At this stage of the investigation, speed is considered a causative factor in the crash.

There are two confirmed fatalities – an adult male died at the scene and an adult female died a few hours later at a nearby hospital. The state police is still in the process of locating and notifying their next of kin.
The remaining passengers’ injuries range from minor to serious.
