UNION, Mo. — An arraignment hearing for two bus drivers involved in a double fatal collision more than a year ago has been rescheduled for December.
Katherine Shackelford, 76, and Kelly McEnnis-Mullenix, 29, were to be arraigned Wednesday on a misdemeanor charge of careless and imprudent driving, KSDK reports. The women's attorneys appeared in court Wednesday to reschedule the hearing.
Shackelford was the driver of a bus that struck the rear of a pickup truck, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports. The pickup was stopped on a highway due to a previous accident.
Shackelford, who was described in the police report as "inattentive," crashed into the truck, which sent it into an immobile tractor trailer unit that was in front of it.
A second bus driven by McEnnis-Mullenix crashed into Shackelford's bus, KSDK reports. The buses were headed to an amusement park for an annual trip involving members of a school band.
As SBF previously reported, the driver of the pickup truck, Daniel Schatz, was killed in the crash. A passenger on Shackelford's bus, Jessica Brinker, was also killed.
More than four dozen other students on both buses were treated for various injuries.
