MORRISTOWN, NJ -- Hudy Muldrow, Sr., the former bus driver for the Paramus School District whose reckless driving resulted in the deaths of a teacher and a student last May, is due back in court on October 31.
Morris County Prosecutors charged Muldrow, 78, with two counts of second-degree reckless vehicular homicide and 25 counts of fourth degree assault by auto. The charges stem from a May 17, 2018 bus crash. The school bus he had been operating at the time collided with a dump truck on Interstate 80 after he attempted to make an illegal turn after he missed his exit. The bus had been carrying 38 fifth-graders and seven adults from East Brook Middle School in Mount Olive Township en route to a field trip to Waterloo Village roughly 40 miles from Paramus.
The collision ended with the school bus flipping over on its side on a grassy median and ripping apart from its chassis. Miranda Vargas, 10, and Jennifer Williamson, a fifth-grade teacher, died in the crash.
