A driver for a discount bus service whose bus crashed on Interstate 95 in Virginia killing four people and injuring others is set to appear in court.

Kin Yiu Cheung is scheduled to appear in Caroline County court on Wednesday. The 37-year-old from Flushing, N.Y., is charged with four felony counts of involuntary manslaughter in last Tuesday’s fatal crash. Those killed were four adult females from New York, Philadelphia and New Jersey.

Police say Cheung was fatigued when the Sky Express bus bound for New York swerved off the highway, hit an embankment and overturned north of Richmond with 58 people aboard. He originally was charged with misdemeanor reckless driving, but was arrested on new charges last week.

Cheung is being held without bond at Pamunkey Regional Jail.
