A bus crash on I-95 in Virginia in May left four people dead.

Kin Yiu Cheung was driving a Sky Express bus from Charlotte bound for New York on May 31, when he reportedly fell asleep at the wheel. The bus flipped just north of Richmond, killing four people and injuring dozens more.

Now Cheung's wife tells the Richmond Times Dispatch that he told his employer he was tired and didn't want to make the trip. She says he got behind the wheel because he was afraid of losing his job.

In a statement to the newspaper, Sky Express attorneys denied ''all wrongdoing'' in connection with the accident.

Cheung has been charged with reckless driving and involuntary manslaughter and is being held without bond.
