Which of the following sentences is correct?

The driver of the bus was expired in the accident.

( or )

The driver of the bus expired in the accident?

It is grammatically incorrect to say,
was expired. The first sentence is therefore definitely wrong. As far as the second sentence is concerned, well, usually in an accident, people die, they do not expire.

Therefore it's better to say: The driver died in the accident.

So the sentence,
The driver expired in the accident is wrong one.. The word expire carries with it the sense that things came to an end gradually along expected lines. In an accident, things do not happen gradually. They happen suddenly, unexpectedly. Therefore died is a better word in this context.
