Durham Bus Driver Charged With Pedestrian Accident

Posted November 30, 2004 8:12 a.m. EST

— Durham police have charged a city bus driver with involuntary manslaughter in an accident that killed a pedestrian.

In September, 48-year-old Johnnie Chavis was making a turn when he hit and killed Katie McClary, who was crossing Broad Street.

McClary was taken to Duke University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later. No one on the bus was injured.

McClary was the junior varsity volleyball and basketball coach at Durham Academy.

A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the bus driver's name as being Johnnie Davis.
