Driver is arraigned in February bus crash

Testifies he was following GPS

The driver of a charter bus that slammed into an overpass on Soldiers Field Road in February continued forward some 500 feet after striking the bridge and told police he entered the roadway because he was “following the GPS.”

Details of the crash, which injured 35 passengers and left one teenager paralyzed, emerged in court documents Tuesday as Samuel Jackson, the 66-year-old driver, was arraigned on charges of negligent driving.
