Authorities plan to charge the man driving a charter bus carrying flood relief volunteers that crashed in Louisiana Sunday, NBC News reported.
Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, 37, will be charged with two counts of negligent homicide, reckless operation and other crimes, according to Matey. Additional charges were expected. She said Rodriguez was in the country illegally and driving without a license.
Two people were killed and 41 were injured in the crash. Spencer Chauvin, 36, a fire chief from St. John the Baptist Parish, was among the fatally wounded, Louisiana State Police spokeswoman Melissa Matey said.
The bus was headed to Baton Rouge Sunday morning to aid in flood relief effort when the crash occurred on Interstate 10 west of New Orleans, NBC affiliate WDSU reported.
