Investigators are telling more about the capture of a man suspected of causing this weekend's bus crash on I-95 that left one person dead.
Virginia State Police say 31-year-old Raphael Manuel Barrientos was driving at a high rate of speed when he cut in front of the American Transportation shuttle bus just south of exit 163 in Lorton early Sunday morning. The bus turned sharply to avoid the car, ran off the road, and overturned.
Barrientos never stopped and left the scene.
Later, State Police tracked down Barrientos' white Acura with the help of witness information. Investigators found the car parked in the 16000 block of Gentle Wood Lane in Dumfries, Va. He was reportedly arrested without incident and charged with one felony count of hit and run. Additional charges could be issued pending review by the state's attorney.
Sixteen passengers, including the driver of the bus, were treated at local hospitals. The passenger who died is identified as 24-year-old David Alberto Sanchez of Woodbridge, Va.
