Pickup Truck Driver Pleads Not Guilty In Fatal Downtown Columbus Crash

Columbus Division of Police

The driver of a pickup truck that Columbus police say ran a red light and struck a school bus near the Statehouse in December has pleaded not guilty and surrendered his driver's license. Prosecutors say 68-year-old Terrance Trent hit a bus carrying three Groveport-Madison students at Broad and High Streets on Decmeber 12.  The impact of the pickup forced the bus into a nearby crosswalk, hitting and killing two pedestrians - 58-year-old Bill Lewis and 21-year-old Stephanie Fibelkorn.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
