GARY, Ind. (WLS) -- An Indiana bus driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel in a crash that killed a 6-year-old boy last week.

A prosecutor says he believes Charles Goodman fell asleep while driving and does not think the bus had any mechanical problems.

The bus carrying members of a Gary church overturned Tuesday on I-70 just outside of Indianapolis.

A boy was killed and 11 others were hurt.

Goodman is charged with felony reckless homicide and driving with a suspended license.
