NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The driver of a double-decker tour bus that was involved in a crash with another bus in Times Square, injuring 14 people, was arrested Wednesday, but authorities have not decided whether to prosecute.
William Dalambert, 58, of Irvington, New Jersey, has been charged with driving while ability impaired.
But the Manhattan District Attorney’s office said preliminary drug and alcohol tests came back negative, and the office will not decide whether to prosecute in the case until the full toxicology report is complete.
“We are taking this matter seriously and prosecutors in the Office’s Vehicular Crimes Unit are conducting a thorough investigation,” the DA’s office said in a statement.
Just after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dalambert was driving a Gray Line tour bus when he struck a parked double-decker CitySights bus at 47th Street and Seventh Avenue, police said.
