Bail was increased to $1 million on Thursday, Nov. 19, as a Superior Court commissioner entered not-guilty pleas on behalf of the driver accused of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence in the 2013 tour bus crash on Highway 38 near Yucaipa that killed eight people.

Norberto Bravo Perez, 55, appeared in the San Bernardino Justice Center courtroom via video hookup. A translator interpreted the hearing for the Spanish-speaking Perez.

Perez had been jailed Wednesday and bail set at $800,000. Commissioner Ronald J. Gilbert did not explain why he increased bail. San Bernardino County jail records show that the California Highway Patrol arrested Perez at the San Ysidro Point of Entry. It was unclear whether Perez was entering or leaving the United States at the time.

Perez worked for Tijuana-based Scapadas Magicas at the time of the crash.

Gilbert appointed a public defender for Perez and set hearing dates for Dec. 1 and Dec. 3.
