FORT PIERCE, Fla. — The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) has turned over its findings about a March school bus crash to the State Attorney's Office, The Palm Beach Post reports.

The details of the findings won’t be released until the state attorney’s review is complete. The outcome of the review will decide if former St. Lucie County School District bus driver Albert Hazen, 56, is cited for a traffic offense or charged criminally for the crash that killed one student and injured many others from an elementary school. A preliminary report released by the FHP in April said that Hazen was inattentive, as he improperly turned left into the path of a semitrailer.

Assistant State Attorney Bernard Romero said he would start looking at the FHP findings on Wednesday and expects to be finished in about a week.
