SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A national safety board investigation has found that a 58-year-old bus driver whose Greyhound bus rolled over last month, killing two, did not have drugs or alcohol in his system.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Friday (http://sfg.ly/1Qvpqg8 ) that the preliminary report released Thursday also rules out mechanical failure as the cause of the crash.

The Jan. 19 crash on a rain-soaked San Jose highway killed two female passengers when the bus plowed into safety barrels and flipped on its side.

California Highway Patrol investigators had earlier ruled out drugs or alcohol and mechanical issues as factors. The driver had told investigators he was tired and had bought a cup of coffee at a stop about 30 miles before the accident.

The investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board continues.
