SOUTH JORDAN, Utah - A Jordan school district bus driver is now facing charges after a 10-year-old girl was killed in May.

The Salt Lake County District Attorney's office has filed reckless endangerment and failure to stop charges against 44-year-old Troy Daniels of Kearns, Utah.

Back in April, Daniels was driving a school bus 10-year-old Seleny Crosby was on.

According to the probable cause statement, “…Daniels deviated from his normal routine by pulling to the side of the road…and activated his 4-way hazard flashers while offloading students. Daniels chose not to activate his red lights and signals or stop sign in the lane of travel because he needed to hand out flyers to the students as they offloaded.” “When S.C. exited the bus, she immediately ran in front of her bus to cross 4000 West. S.C. ran in to the southbound lane of travel, where she was hit by school bus number 1482 traveling southbound.”
