NJ Transit bus driver Wilson Romaine 65 was never sentence, charged nor was any bail money set for the bus driver in death of pedestrian/passenger 22 year old Deshon Johnson from Montclair NJ. On Wednesday July 18, 2012 Romaine failed to pick up Johnson while waiting at the bus stop. Johnson was singling to the bus driver to stop but he continues to drive recklessly when Romaine approached the flat surface handicap curb at the intersection on Broad where victim Johnson stood. When Romaine knocked Johnson down he proceeded to drag Johnson far distance around the corner of Bay Avenue in Bloomfield NJ to his death. Newly discover information shows that Johnson was at the bus front door not rear as Romaine road over Johnson twice with the front and back wheel.
On the other hand, NJ Transit bus driver Catherine Collier 67 was sentence a year ago for pedestrian/passenger Mr. Currier from Passaic NJ. Mr. Currier just existed off the bus on Main and Brook Avenues driven by Collier when she road over the victim Currier as he step off the curb into the crosswalk on Main Avenue when he was killed by reckless bus driver Collier. Collier proceeded to drive while at the intersection as the traffic light was turning from yellow to red and hit victim.
According to North Jersey http://www.northjersey.com/news/ex-nj-transit-bus-driver-in-fatal-pedestrian-accident-draws-probationary-term-1.1172860 article Ms Collier, stated “It was not my intention for this to happen,” Catherine Collier, 67, said at her sentencing in state Superior Court in Paterson. Yet Collier was sentenced to a one-year suspended jail term, which she will not have to serve if she completes probation without violations. The judge ordered Collier to perform 150 hours of community service geared towards educating young adults about safe driving… “That is the only positive message that can come from this double tragedy,” the judge said.
Ex-NJ Transit bus driver Collier was charged with vehicular homicide after the bus she was driving struck and killed 49-year-old Joseph Currier of Passaic on Sept. 27, 2012. Collier initially was charged with a second-degree offense, but later pleaded guilty to a fourth-degree charge of assault-by-auto.
According to NJ Transit bus company/Community Coach USA spokes person stated that it was not Romaine attention to kill Johnson. However, under the newly discover information audio you can hear Romaine confessing twice in seeing victim Johnson. Also, in the audio you heard the lawyer telling Romaine remember you did not see anyone.
Needless to say, it was not Collier attention to kill Currier but she was charged. Two productive citizens was killed by a reckless NJ Transit bus driver but one bus driver was charged/ suspended from her NJ Transit job for her victim Currier death and the other bus driver was not charged for Johnson death. Romaine walks away a free man record.http://www.northjersey.com/news/grand-jury-clears-driver-in-bloomfield-fatal-accident-1.544433 and went back to work operating NJ Transit/Community Coach Bus with a bad driving Sadly to say, Johnson case was handled poorly by Essex County Prosecutors.
Here you have two mothers Johnson and Currier devastated by the loss of their sons. Currier ‘son’s killer has limit accountability which is not enough and Johnson’s mother is still fighting to get the bus driver brought up on charges.
The death of these two mother sons hit them very hard and both parents want a stiff sentence. Naomi is seeking for justice her son like Currier.
According to North Jersey article Currier “This has hit me very, very hard,” she said, asking the judge for a stiff sentence. “His life was taken away. I like to see justice done for my son.” http://www.northjersey.com/ne
NJ Transit rep. think money can buy a human life and everyone can move on with their life so it can be done and over with. These two mothers cannot move on with their life they both cannot not spend those special holidays or events with their children. There are no dollar amount for the lost of both parents son. Naomi said that it is hard to put a price on her son’s life. NJ Transit Bus Company does not put high value on human safety they more concern about dollar signs.
