A Long Island cement truck driver has been convicted of manslaughter and assault for crashing into an overpass and a school bus in 2012, killing the driver.
The Nassau County district attorney's office says 45-year-old Raymond Ragen, of Mineola, was convicted Wednesday after a three and half week trial.
The jury acquitted him of aggravated vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter.
The crash in Locust Valley killed Jorge Guevara. It also injured a bus attendant and four special-needs children going home from summer camp.
Police say Ragen's 13-foot-high truck smashed into a 10-foot railroad underpass then hit the oncoming bus.
His defense attorney had said it was a "tragic accident" and not a crime.
He said Ragan was driving slowly and safely, tried to stop in time, and was not impaired.
