NEW YORK CITY — Late Wednesday, prosecutors said they were holding off on a decision to try the driver of a sightseeing bus that plowed into a crowded Times Square plaza until they receive a full toxicology report, according to AP.

Preliminary drug and alcohol tests for the driver William Dalambert came back negative, however, he failed a field sobriety test after Tuesday's crash, leading police to float the theory that he may have been high on drugs.

Dalambert was at the wheel of a Gray Line bus that crashed into another double-decker tourist bus on Tuesday before traveling onto a sidewalk at Duffy Square. The accident sent 14 people to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. For the full story, click here.
