MIAMI (AP) — The bus driver charged in a crash at Miami International Airport that killed three passengers says he is innocent.
Ramon Ferreiro told The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/1eyuQpj ) Friday, “You never think an accident is going to happen, but it did.”
Ferreiro said he is not a killer and declined to comment on advice of his attorneys.
The 48-year-old driver has been charged with three counts of felony vehicular homicide as well as reckless driving.
Ferreiro was driving a charter bus carrying 31 people en route to a Jehovah’s Witness assembly last December. He crashed the nearly 12-foot-tall bus into an airport arrival entrance with a clearance of about 10 feet. One passenger in the upper section was killed and two others died later from injuries sustained in the crash.
