BOWLING GREEN, Va. (AP) - A North Carolina bus dispatcher will stand trial in Virginia in October on charges stemming from a wreck that killed four passengers.
The Caroline County Circuit Court clerk's office says the trial of Zhao Jian Chen of Greensboro, N.C., was continued on Wednesday from its original June court date. The two-day trial is now set to begin Oct. 30.
In March, Chen pleaded not guilty to four involuntary manslaughter counts stemming from the May 31, 2011, crash on Interstate 95 about 30 miles north of Richmond.
Prosecutor Tony Spencer has said Chen told Sky Express driver Kin Yiu Cheung of New York to continue driving after Cheung told him he was too tired.
Cheung's bus swerved off the highway, hit an embankment and overturned. He also faces involuntary manslaughter charges.
