MARSHALL COUNTY — The driver who rear ended a school bus on US 31 in December 2018 that led to the death of one student and injured over 30 others will not face any charges in the case after a Grand Jury did not indict Tylor Perry.
The decision was announced Friday afternoon during a press conference.
The driver of a commercial truck, Tylor Perry, was accused of rear ending the school bus while it was stopped at a set of railroad tracks in Marshall County on December 5.
One student seated in the back of the bus, Owen Abbott, was killed and over 30 other students were injured in the crash.
Police reports say the driver was taking off his sweatshirt just before the crash.
The Grand Jury considered whether Perry’s actions were reckless as defined by Indiana statute.
The Grand Jury returned a no bill, which means it found no charges were appropriate.
