JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) — A judge has delayed the case of a former Washington County school bus driver, but says it will be the final postponement stemming from the 2012 crash that injured dozens of high school students.
The Johnson City Press reported that Criminal Court Judge Robert Cupp said Brenda Gray's case will go forward July 18 regardless of whether a plea agreement has been reached.
Gray had been set for trial this week on 39 counts of reckless aggravated assault resulting from the Sept. 20, 2012, crash. Both prosecutors and Gray's lawyers asked for an extension to reach a plea agreement.
Investigators believe she was driving between 52 and 60 mph when the bus twice went off the road before turning over and rolling to a stop.
