WALTHAM, MASS. (WHDH) - A bus driver from Boston has been arraigned on a criminal charge in connection with a fatal crash in November 2022 in Waltham, officials said.

Jean Fenelon, 58, was arraigned Friday in Waltham District Court on a motor vehicle homicide charge in connection with the Nov. 19 crash that claimed the life Vanessa Mark, 25, according to a statement issued by Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Waltham Police Chief Kevin O’Connell.

Officers responding to the crash determined the shuttle was operating a route from the Boston and Cambridge area and was heading back to Brandeis University.

Prosecutors say an investigation determined Fenelon was driving 52 mph in a 30 mph zone and driving erratically before the bus left the roadway crashing into two trees. The investigation also alleges Fenelon failed to apply the brakes before hitting two trees.
