Driver charged after school bus crash in Middletown, Delaware

Delaware State Police

Delaware State Police say two students suffered minor injuries when their school bus overturned and the driver has been charged.

Authorities say the accident happened about 6:20 a.m. Monday near Middletown.

Investigators say the bus was being driven to Newark High School by 35-year-old Shaneeka Comeger of Wilmington and was carrying two students and a bus aide.

Police say a vehicle in front of the bus braked because of slowing traffic, and that Comeger swerved to the right to avoid a rear-end collision.

The bus veered off the road and struck a ditch before rolling onto its right side.

The two students, a 17 year old boy and a 16 year old girl, were taken to a hospital with minor injuries. Comeger and the 49-year-old bus aide were uninjured.

Comeger was charged with following too closely.
