NTSB to discuss deadly Virginia tour bus crash

The National Transportation Safety Board is meeting to determine the likely cause of a bus crash in Virginia that killed four people and injured dozens.

The board also will consider safety recommendations at its meeting Tuesday in Washington.

The crash occurred May 31, 2011, when a Sky Express bus bound for New York overturned on Interstate 95 about 30 miles north of Richmond.

Bus driver Kin Yiu Cheung faces four counts of involuntary manslaughter. Court records show Cheung told police he fell asleep at the wheel. His trial is set for Nov. 8.

Dispatcher Zhao Jian Chen is set to face the same charges in October.
