Grand jury indicts man accused of hitting APS bus
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The Albuquerque man accused of racing and crashing into a school bus full of children is now looking at the consequences.
The crash happened in February, with almost two dozen children on the bus.
Mario Perez was reportedly street racing a blue Mustang on Gibson Boulevard SW when he crashed his white Mustang into the school bus, causing it to flip on its side.
According to an arrest warrant, a witness estimated the two Mustangs were racing at more than 110 mph in a 40 mph zone.
Perez is facing a grand jury indictment on 15 counts of child abuse and two counts of child abuse resulting in great bodily harm.
A court date for the trial hasn’t been set.
