Former SC bus driver pleads no contest in crash

Feb 14, 2011 4:23:00 PM - thestate.com
A former Horry County school bus driver has been fined $155 for failing to yield the right-of-way in a crash that killed a high school student on a motorcycle.

Prosecutors say 78-year-old Michael Joseph Burns pleaded no contest last week as part of a plea deal.

Burns' attorney Gene Vaught says the negotiations began shortly after a jury couldn't come to a verdict during a trial last year.

Vaught says Burns realized subsequent juries might never come to a verdict in the case and decided to enter his plea.

Burns testified at that trial he was not responsible for the crash in Myrtle Beach in November 2009.
