Bus driver’s actions weighted in probe of Bagaces crash

The Canadian family that was the victim of a highway crash in Bagaces Thursday were hit by a bus traveling behind them.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said that the bus collided with their vehicle as they were making a turn into their home. That happened not far from the Puente Villa Vieja.

The dead were identified as Howard Moulton, 87, and Jerry Moulton, 24. Based on incorrect information from judicial agents, the older Moulton was incorrectly identified as Howard in a news story posted Friday morning. That was his middle name. The younger Moulton is believed to be a dual-Canadian-Costa Rican citizen.

Investigators said that the bus was heading to Peñas Blancas from San José.
