NY school linked to Va. bus crash loses license

NY driving school linked to fatal Va. bus crash loses license; owners charged with fraud By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' New York state has suspended the license of a driving school linked to a bus crash that killed four people in Virginia.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (KWOH'-moh) announced the suspension Monday, saying he promised his state wouldn't tolerate unsafe buses, unqualified drivers or fraud in obtaining licenses.

The Hong Kong-born owners of the N&Y Professional Service Line school in Brooklyn are charged with fraud for what prosecutors say was getting commercial driver's licenses for people without the necessary skills.



Students included a driver who admitted he fell asleep before a low-fare bus from Greensboro, N.C., to New York City crashed in Virginia last June.

The suspension comes after authorities say the school owners fraudulently helped an undercover agent pass a written commercial driver's license permit test.

A defense attorney says his client is entitled to a presumption of innocence.
