BOWLING GREEN, Va. (AP) - A June trial has been set for the driver of an interstate bus that crashed in Virginia last May, killing four passengers and injuring dozens more.

 

The Caroline County clerk's office says a trial is set for June 25 for Kin Yiu Cheung of New York. Cheung is facing four felony counts of involuntary manslaughter.

 

The trial previously had been continued.

 

Court records show Cheung admitted to police that he fell asleep at the wheel when the low-fare Sky Express bus from Greensboro, N.C., to New York City swerved off Interstate 95 about 30 miles north of Richmond, hit an embankment and overturned with 60 people aboard May 31, 2011.

 

He faces up to 10 years in prison for each count if convicted.

 

Cheung has pleaded not guilty.
