An illegal alien from Honduras without a driver’s license was driving a bus over the speed limit in Louisiana when he crashed into a fire truck, killing two and injuring 36 when he plowed into a fire truck, according to Louisiana State Police and reported by Fox News. Everyone on the bus he was driving was injured.
Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, 37, of Honduras, will be arrested on two counts of negligent homicide and one each of reckless driving and driving without a license, Trooper Melissa Matey said. “Additional criminal charges are forthcoming,” she said, adding that Rodriquez had minor injuries.
A ladder truck from St. John the Baptist Parish had parked across the right lane of an elevated Interstate 10 to block traffic while police investigated an earlier accident
At 7:17 a.m. the bus full of construction workers hit the fire truck and then rear-ended a 2012 Toyota Camry, pushing it into a flatbed trailer being towed by a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado. The bus then veered behind the fire truck and into the first pickup truck, a 2005 Nissan Titan. It also knocked three firefighters, who were standing near the guard rail, into the water 30 to 40 feet below.
Killed were Jermaine Starr, 21, of Moss Point, Mississippi, a back-seat passenger in the Camry, and St. John the Baptist Parish district Fire Chief Spencer Chauvin.
The injured included the other two firefighters, the bus driver, 24 bus passengers and a total of nine people in the car and pickups.
Firefighter Nicholas Saale, 32, of Ponchatoula, and Camry passenger Vontravous Kelly of Moss Point, Mississippi, are in critical condition. The Camry’s other two occupants, driver Marcus Tate, 35, and David Jones, both of Moss Point, are in serious condition.
Other injuries — including the Titan’s two occupants – who suffered minor injuries in the original crash — ranged from minor to moderate.
The bus was transporting flood recovery workers for AM Party Bus/Kristina’s Transportation.
The left’s answer to illegal immigrants driving without licenses is not to deport them but to give them licenses. The US routinely releases criminal aliens onto the streets of America rather than deport them, many are accused of vehicular crimes including drunk driving.
