The school bus driver involved in Tuesday's deadly collision with an MTA bus wasn't authorized to drive a commercial motor vehicle, according to the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration. 

Officials issued a statement saying 67-year-old Glenn R. Chappell failed to update his Medical Examiner’s Certificate, which expired on August 31.

Drivers are required to maintain their Medical Examiner’s Certificates according to federal regulations.
