Arizona school bus driver suspected of driving impaired ahead of crash
PHOENIX — A school bus driver in Arizona was arrested this week for allegedly driving under the influence before being involved in a collision that injured two students.
Sherri Sessions, 56, is accused of driving impaired in the collision that occurred around 8 a.m. Monday while the Payson Unified School District bus was headed to Payson High.
It’s still unclear whether another vehicle was involved in the collision with the bus.
Two students aboard the bus were taken to a hospital. Their names, ages and conditions haven’t been released.
The remaining students were put on a different bus that took them to school.
Sessions has been booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated driving under the influence, three counts of aggravated assault and 24 counts of endangerment.
It’s unclear if Sessions has a lawyer.
