COLUMBIA — A bus driver who ran over an MU student in September at Les Bourgeois Vineyards in Rocheport is not at fault in the situation, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

After the winery closed for the night on Sept. 18, students were boarding the bus in the parking lot. As the driver put the vehicle in reverse, it ran over Brian Lindsey, a 22-year-old student.

Rachel Mills, the winery's marketing director, said Les Bourgeois has suspended all large after-hours events through the end of this year. Miller said the winery was determining what constituted a large group on a case-by-case basis.
