ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The state is looking into the competency of a Greyhound passenger accused of grabbing the steering wheel and crashing a bus. Investigators say last week, Leroy Maass first got into a fight with his brother, then jumped a Plexiglass barrier and took hold of the wheel. The bus was going about 60 mph near downtown Albuquerque.
