Driver in fatal Colorado bus crash identified
PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — Officials have identified the driver of a charter bus who was killed in a Colorado interstate crash as a 36-year-old New Mexico man.
State Patrol Sgt. Blake White said Tuesday that Anthony L. Padilla was killed in Sunday’s accident north of Pueblo.
Also killed was 53-year-old Jason Paul Marshall, a seminarian with the Albuquerque-based Archdiocese of Santa Fe.
The bus was bringing a New Mexico high school church group home from a Denver retreat when it struck a bridge abutment on Interstate 25.
Thirteen passengers were injured, one critically.
Albuquerque-based Follow the Sun Inc. told The Denver Post Padilla had worked with the charter firm for a year.
The firm has a good safety rating, according to U.S. transportation department records.
