(Moab-AP) -- A man charged with hijacking a passenger bus near Green River has waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
Antonio Hernandez-Hernandez faces state and federal charges from the May 31st hijacking. The 28-year-old from Lexington, Nebraska, was indicted by a federal grand jury two weeks ago on one count of carjacking.
He waived his right to a hearing Tuesday.
Hernandez-Hernandez is accused of taking control of the bus and forcing the passengers to get off. The driver kept going to just west of the Colorado state line, before he escaped and Hernandez-Hernandez was taken into custody.
