PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - A judge in New Jersey has overturned the conviction of a tour bus driver from Canada who crashed in 2012, injuring 23 people.

Neville Larmond of Toronto was found guilty in Wayne municipal court in 2012 of traveling more than 10 hours as a commercial driver without rest, being on duty more than 15 hours both driving and not driving and keeping a false driver’s log.

The Record (https://bit.ly/1EI3yMw ) newspaper reports Larmond’s attorney, Albert Mollo, successfully argued the charges were filed more than a month after the statute of limitations had expired. An unsafe lane change charge was upheld.

The judge on Wednesday vacated $15,000 of a $15,206 fine.

Larmond told authorities he was cut off.

There were 57 passengers headed from Toronto to New York City.
