COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The driver of a pickup truck that authorities say ran a red light and struck a school bus near the Ohio Statehouse has pleaded not guilty and surrendered his driver’s license.

Prosecutors say Terrance Trent ran a red light and struck a bus carrying three Groveport Madison schoolchildren in downtown Columbus on Dec. 12. The impact of Trent’s pickup truck forced the bus into a nearby crosswalk, hitting two pedestrians.

A female pedestrian was killed at the scene. A male pedestrian died from his injuries about two weeks later.

The 62-year-old Trent has been indicted on charges of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault. Trent entered his not guilty plea Friday in Franklin County court, with bond set at $205,000.

Court records list no attorney for Trent.
