— Police say the driver of a school bus that overturned with 32 students on board in Virginia has been charged with reckless driving.

Police say the driver, Linda Moss, has been charged. She was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. A number for Moss was not listed and it was not immediately clear if she has an attorney.

Police say only one student suffered a minor injury, but all 32 of them were taken to hospitals as a precautionary measure.
