Criminally negligent homicide charge recommended for Irving bus crash driver

Posted: Updated:

The Texas Department of Public Safety has recommended the driver of a tour bus that crashed in Irving in April should face a criminally negligent homicide charge.

Three people were killed and dozens injured when the bus veered off and flipped on its side on Highway 161 on April 11.

The driver, Lloyd Rieve, 65, was seriously injured in the crash, but survived.

The charge has been forwarded to the Dallas County District Attorney's Office for consideration by a grand jury.

DPS made the recommendation after a months-long investigation into the crash.

The charter bus was carrying senior citizens on a trip to a casino in Oklahoma.
