Police: Driver who caused inmate bus crash may never be found

State police say they may never find the driver who cut off a prison bus transporting 16 inmates that flipped over on the New York

MONSEY - State police say they may never find the driver who cut off a prison bus transporting 16 inmates that flipped over on the New York State Thruway yesterday, sparking fears of a potential escape.

Boruch Avish, of nearby Monsey, says his first thought after hearing about the collision was that it was done on purpose. However, police say the crash was not an escape attempt. They say the driver, 42-year-old Roy Zender, lost control of the bus when he was cut off by a mystery vehicle.

Zender couldn't describe the car that cut him off and didn't get the license plate number.

Following the collision, all of the inmates were secured and treated without incident at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern. They were then transported back to prison upstate as planned.
