Charges after Va. school bus crash
A Prince William County Schools bus driver has been charged with following too closely after the bus he was driving crashed into another school bus on Tuesday afternoon.
Prince William police said that two county buses were driving northbound on Rixlew Lane in the same lane near the Manassas Mall when the lead bus stopped for a red light. The second bus continued driving and rear-ended of the first bus.
There were only minor injuries to those on board – mostly pain and soreness, police said. One girl, a 14-year-old Stonewall Jackson High School student, was driven to an area hospital as a precaution.
Police charged Chester Grala, 73, of Manassas, with following too closely. He was released on a summons and has a court date scheduled for Nov. 10.
