PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The father of a man who was driving a Greyhound bus that crashed on the Pennsylvania Turnpike says it's the first accident his son has had in eight months with the company.
State police have identified the driver in Saturday's crash as 24-year-old Kareem Edward Farmer.
Farmer's father, Derrick Bivins, spoke outside the family's Philadelphia home and says he and his wife have had brief telephone conversations with Farmer since the crash. Bivins says his son needed stitches for a head laceration and a cut on his arm but is fine otherwise.
Bivins says Farmer doesn't have any health problems and hasn't had any other accidents while working for Greyhound.
He says Farmer previously drove a tanker truck used to refuel planes at Philadelphia International Airport.
