York Bus Driver Could Face Charges In Hit And Run

YORK, NC– Tonight a school bus driver involved in a deadly hit and run accident in York could face charges.

Police found 77-year-old Carlos Octavio lying in a ditch near Lincoln Road around nine this morning.

They believe the mirror on the passenger side of the bus hit him.

Chief Andy Robinson of the York Police Department says, “He had no pulse when the officers first arrived. They were able to get a pulse once they started CPR, but they weren’t able to keep a pulse.”

Police tracked down the driver after York Comprehensive High School reported damage to a school bus. That driver is cooperating with investigators.
