BOISE -- Valley Regional Transit released the video from the camera inside a bus that crashed into the Idaho Power building last month.

The driver has been charged with negligent driving. Investigators say there's evidence the driver, a 59-year-old man from Boise, was driving drowsy and appeared to have his eyes closed just prior to the crash.

A total of 9 people were aboard the bus Jan. 6 as it slammed into the Idaho Power Headquarters, dislodging a structural pillar and penetrating the building. Prior to the crash, the bus cut through a parking lot, damaging cars, street signs, and trees.

One passenger was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
