On the advice of his attorneys, truck driver Ruben Perez, 25, chose not to talk to National Transportation Safety Board members about the Thursday accident in Alton, Tex., that injured at least 63 others.

The driver of the truck that hit a school bus in Texas last fall, sending it into a water-filled pit and killing 21 students, should have been able to stop despite faulty brakes, the National Transportation Safety Board said Tuesday. The small number of emergency exits--only two--contributed to the deaths, the board said. NTSB Chairman James Kolstad said driver Ruben Perez "did not respond soon enough and he did not respond aggressively enough."

A vice principal who wanted to suspend 100 of his school's 785 students as troublemakers was overruled and himself suspended. District administrators said that Ruben Perez of Horace Mann Middle School hadn't consulted his superiors before drawing up suspension letters to parents and that the mass punishment would have violated the youngsters' rights. "I cannot support a blanket suspension of 100 or so students," said Bernadette Seick, an assistant superintendent of Denver schools.

A man who eluded police for eight years after a drunk-driving crash that killed two young women was sentenced Tuesday to three years and eight months in prison despite an angry protest from one victim's mother. Ruth Hanzlik, whose daughter, Carrie Sue, was killed in the accident, told a Van Nuys Superior Court judge that Ruben Perez Lemon should receive a longer sentence. Judge Leon Kaplan sentenced Lemon under the terms of a plea bargain reached with prosecutors last month.

The rest stop came to the motorist Monday. A dropped portable potty clogged traffic on the San Diego Freeway in Irvine during the early-morning commute. And later in the day, drivers might well have sung "If I Had a Hammer" while waiting on the same freeway because of a spilled load of nails, which shut down all six southbound lanes near Seal Beach Boulevard. The first incident occurred at 5:40 a.m.
