*Police say the man who crashed a stolen truck into a New York City bus, killing the driver and injuring four others, was a 22-year-old who had been out partying with his uncle, model and actor Tyson Beckford, earlier that night.
Domonic Whilby, has reportedly been charged with vehicular manslaughter in connection with the Wednesday, Feb. 12 crash.
William Pena, a 17-year transit worker, died after being thrown from the bus, which collided into scaffolding and a building. Five other people, including Whilby, were injured in the accident, the Associated Press reported.
According to the Daily News, Instagram photos showed Whilby partying with Tyson at a birthday party for Beckford’s model girlfriend Shanina Shaik at Chelsea nightclub 1 OAK hours before the accident.
According to the Daily News, Whilby’s destructive run started when he was kicked out of the party. He couldn’t locate his limousine and reportedly became enraged. The super of a nearby apartment building reported Whilby began randomly banging on doors.
“He was sweating like a mad dog,” said Victor Vega, who turned over surveillance video to police. “He had to be high on drugs. He started kicking and banging the doors.”
Not far from there, in the basement of the Maritime Hotel, witnesses say he spotted an idling, unattended truck and stole it.
Police told CBS News that the truck went four blocks before crashing into the bus around 5:30 a.m. Whilby was taken to Bellevue Hospital. He was arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter, grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and felony assault.
