A school bus driver charged in a deadly crash in New Jersey earlier this month will be in court on Wednesday.
Hudy Muldrow, 77, has been charged with death by auto in connection with the crash that killed a teacher and a 10-year-old student. He’ll find out on Wednesday whether he’ll be released.
Reports said that Muldrow attempted to make an illegal U-turn on May 17th after missing an exit on Route 80 in Mount Olive. The school bus collided with a dump truck and was flipped on its side.
Jennifer Williamson Kennedy and fifth grader Miranda Vargas were both killed. The bus was carrying students and adults from the East Brook Middle School on a class trip.
“My Beautiful Bride and I have been in total love every day of our lives since the day our eyes met on 5/5/94. I am in shock, devastated and totally crushed by today's tragedy to both sides of the Willamson-Kennedy families, the community she taught and the thousands of students and their families she was very proud to serve,” Williamson-Kennedy’s husband Kevin Kennedy said in a statement.
Muldrow’s driving record includes 14 license suspensions and 8 speeding tickets. The most recent license suspension came in December of 2017.
