Grand jury to probe Santa Fe bus crash


According to the Albuquerque Journal, a Santa Fe (N.M.) county grand jury will be impaneled to consider criminal charges in the March 1999 charter bus accident that resulted in two deaths and 30 injuries. An 11-year-old boy and a 44-year-old parent died in the crash, while several other children suffered serious injuries. The charter bus was owned and operated by Shuttlejack, which was subsequently shut down by former owner Ray Sena. The bus crashed while transporting a group of elementary school students back from a ski trip in the Santa Fe mountains. Federal investigators attributed the crash to brake failure. Sena, who recently suffered a heart attack, is also being investigated for allegedly violating a court order by leasing two of his former Shuttlejack buses to an El Paso, Texas, company.
