SALISBURY, Md. (AP/WBOC)- Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said a bus driver involved in a collision that killed a teenage boy in Salisbury failed to yield the right-of-way.

But the sheriff also said the off-road motorcycle that two teenage boys were riding during the crash was not properly registered. Police documents show neither boy was wearing a helmet or safety gear. The Sept. 13 accident occurred when the dirt bike collided with a Shore Up! bus on Tuscola Avenue, killing 15-year-old Joshua Thomas Fridley of Salisbury, who was riding the motorcycle.

Lewis said that although his office is preparing to close its investigation, the decision on whether to prosecute rests with county prosecutors.

Meanwhile, Fruitland police continue to investigate a separate bus accident that occurred that same day on the intersection of East Cedar Lane and North Dulany Avenue. In that crash, a 71-year-old woman was run over and killed by a Shore Transit bus after it had just made a scheduled stop.
