CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The driver of a school activity bus that rolled onto its side on a North Carolina highway, injuring dozens of students, has been cited for reckless driving.
The Highway Patrol said Thursday they think Tonia Crowell was distracted by a bee while driving a group of students from Cox Mill Elementary School in Concord on Interstate 77 early Wednesday.
Troopers say Crowell swatted at the bee and drifted off the highway.
A spokeswoman for Cabarrus County schools says Crowell has been suspended with pay. All but one of the 36 students injured in the crash have been released from local hospitals.
