COLLEGE PARK, Ga. - Charges against one of the drivers involved in a hotel shuttle bus crash that injured 17 people have been lessened to traffic citations.
MTI said College Park officials withdrew the felony warrants and issued three traffic citations instead.
At a first appearance Thursday morning, the judge denied the state’s request for a bond of $7,000 and issued a signature bond.
Boles was behind the wheel of a hotel shuttle bus that crashed into a tractor-trailer as it made a U-turn near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport last month.
The truck driver, Mario Cochran, was charged with three counts of serious injury by motor vehicle. He has also been charged with an improper left turn.
