The indictment alleges that Hudy Muldrow’s reckless operation of a school bus on May 17, 2018 caused the deaths of two juveniles and caused injuries to 40 additional bus passengers plus the driver of a dump truck.

Muldrow is charged with with two counts of Reckless Vehicular Homicide and 25 counts of Assault by Auto. He also is also charged with 16 counts of Assault by Auto.

The matter is tentatively scheduled for an arraignment before Superior Court Judge Stephen Taylor at the Morris County Courthouse on April 29.

The Facts in the Case:

Muldrow, employed by the Paramus Board of Education, was part of a three-bus caravan headed to Waterloo Village in Stanhope for a fifth-grade school field trip. He missed the exit and allegedly attempted to steer the bus across three lanes to reach the official-use-only turnaround in the grassy median, court documents say.

The bus collided with a dump truck and flipped over on its side in the median, records show. The bus cab was sheared from the chassis, authorities said.

Inquiries should be directed to Public Information Officer Peter DiGennaro at or 973-829-8159.
