State Had Revoked Commercial Driving Privileges of Baltimore School Bus Driver in Fatal Crash

The driver of a school bus that careened into an oncoming bus Tuesday causing a deadly crash in Southwest Baltimore was not legally permitted to be driving a school bus, state officials said Thursday.

The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration had revoked Glenn Chappell’s commercial driving privileges two months ago because he failed to provide the agency with a certificate showing he was in good health.

The revelation raised questions about how well the Baltimore school system monitors the standing of drivers in its fleet of contract buses. City schools officials did not respond to requests for comment Thursday.
