A verdict will be read Friday in the case of a tour bus driver charged in the collision in the Bronx that killed 15 people.
The jury reached a decision on Ophadell Williams Thursday but the judge adjourned proceedings because a juror had to leave early for medical reasons.
Williams faces 54 criminal counts, including charges of manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide.
Prosecutors say he was driving on little sleep and speeding when his bus flipped onto its side on I-95 and slammed into a pole, slicing off its roof.
Fifteen passengers were killed and 15 others were severely injured.
Williams' attorney claims he was cut off by a tractor trailer.
He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
