The school bus driver involved in a fatal crash in Lake County had a clean record before the incident.

State officials say the woman didn’t have any previous accidents or citations and her physical exam results were normal.

The bus, taking 30 children to school, hit a Jeep Wrangler and a Jeep Cherokee before landing on its side at Route 173 and Kilbourne, Friday morning.

The driver of the Wrangler was killed.

The children on-board the bus were sent to hospitals, but none suffered life-threatening injuries.

There are conflicting statements from witnesses that the bus ran a red light.

    Just because she had a 'clean' record doesn't exempt her from murder or attempted mass murder. She was in control of a potential weapon that did kill one person and could have easily killed up to 30 more, those being someone's precious little ones like in Connecticut.

      IF and that's a big IF the bus driver is charged with anything it would be wreck less homicide or manslaughter. It's called an ACCIDENT for a reason. Like Guest said, maybe it wasn't her fault at all. Show a little intelligence and compassion. I'm pretty sure she is devastated about this. As we all are. I, like you was very upset and outraged at her when this first happened, and now that more information has come out, my opinion is changing. My kids attend that school and ride the bus. So, believe me if they didn't have good drivers I'd be taking them myself.
