Driver pleads not guilty to drunken crash into bus
May 23, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Jimmy Velasco

A man who reportedly told authorities “I’m a little drunk” after rear-ending a stopped SamTrans bus in South San Francisco will stand trial this fall on intoxicated driving charges.

Jimmy Alameda Velasco, 32, pleaded not guilty Thursday to the charges and was scheduled to begin jury trial Sept. 15.

Velasco reportedly hit the bus just before 6 p.m. Jan. 3 as it stopped at the intersection of El Camino Real and Arroyo Drive. Many passengers were taken to local hospitals but Velasco was unharmed and said “I hit the bus, I’m a little drunk.”

Velasco reportedly couldn’t finish his field sobriety tests and preliminary blood alcohol levels were .17 and .19, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Once arrested, he allegedly vomited in the back seat of the patrol car.

He is free from custody on a $50,000 bail bond.
