More than five weeks after a school bus collided with a semi north east of Beaverlodge, RCMP in that community have laid charges against the bus driver.

A 41 year old Valhalla Centre woman is charged with failing to proceed safely after stopping at an intersection, and is slated to appear in Grande Prairie court on April 30th.

Back on February 18th, a school bus travelling east bound on Township road 722 collided with a semi heading north on Highway 723.

Neither of the drivers were injured, but 10 of the 12 children on the bus at the time were taken to hospital with various injuries.
