DETROIT (AP) – An investigation by New York state police has determined that a Michigan truck driver had ample time to avoid rear-ending a slow-moving tour bus on an upstate highway but failed to brake, and died in a fiery crash that injured more than 50 bus passengers.

The early morning crash in July happened when a bus traveling from Canada to New York merged back onto the New York State Thruway after pulling over for a mechanical problem. The bus was hit by a tractor-trailer driven by Timothy Hume, killing the 59 year-old Flint man.

One investigator says Hume may have been distracted or could have fallen asleep at the wheel.
