A New York man accused of vehicular homicide in connection with the death of a 8-month-old child in West New York has been found not guilty.

Today, Superior Court Judge Joseph V. Isabella found 52-year-old Idowu Daramola not guilty of the July 30, 2013 crash that killed 8-month-old Angelie Paredes.

The verdict was reached after the state allegedly failed to prove the case against Daramola.

According to authorities, on July 30, 2013, Daramola was driving a bus on Boulevard East when the bus went off the road, onto the curb where it struck a lamppost.

The post fell on top of Angelie, who was in a stroller that her mother, Maylin Hago, was pushing through the area.

Despite today's verdict, the case brought awareness to obligations, restrictions, and expectations of bus operators through Angelie's Law.
