Truck driver who fled trial returned from United States

A truck driver who fled Costa Rica to avoid trial over deaths and injuries his vehicle caused in an accident has returned home.

The Poder Judicial said his last names were Muñoz Solórzano. The man was involved in an accident Dec. 30, 2007.

He was named in two counts of vehicular homicide and seven counts of causing injuries to others. He was on the Interamericana Sur when it appears his truck crossed into the oncoming lane on a curve and collided with a microbus.

He was detained in the United States this week and extradited to Costa Rica Thursday.
