Driver charged in fatal bus crash to appear in court

HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – The man who police say was driving a church bus that crashed on Interstate 70 over the summer is expected in court Friday morning.

A hearing is scheduled in Hancock County for Charles Goodman. Goodman was driving the bus on I-70 near Greenfield when it went off the road and struck two trees, flipped and caught fire, resulting in the death of a six-year-old boy and injuring at least 10 others in July.

Prosecutors originally charged Goodman with reckless homicide. Friday’s hearing deals with a newer charge of operating while intoxicated.

According to investigators, toxicology reports found Goodman had traces of cocaine in his system at the time of the crash.
