This is a perfect example why elderly should be tested and retested yearly! No trace of drugs or alcohol means this tragic accident is to blame on age.

All school bus drivers must take and pass a physical examination each year which is required to retain their CDL's.

They are also subjected to two random drug and alcohol tests each year.

I would wager that you could not pass either one of them.

None of the reports state that the 76 year old man was texting. Officers will check phones & records to find a cause of accident. Vehicular homicide is reasonable cause for such a search.

Truckers have to pass annual exams as well and they get random drug tests. Nevermind what they go through when they get DOT'd!

God bless Mr. Hayes and the family he left behind. We need stricter laws for the elderly driving. They should be be tested as often as professional drivers.
