Unlicensed Driver Blames Crash On Faulty Brakes

Posted on August 31, 2016

NEW ORLEANS, La. -- The driver of the party bus that crashed early Aug. 28 in St. John the Baptist Parish blamed faulty brakes for the fatal collision, according to three people who have spoken to surviving witnesses.

Meanwhile, several elected officials in Louisiana and beyond demanded answers regarding the immigration status of the bus driver, Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, an undocumented Honduran national who has been cited a half-dozen times for driving without a license and was arrested in 2011 on domestic abuse battery charges that were later dropped.
