ROCKFORD, Mich. (AP) - A West Michigan school bus driver has been charged in a crash that killed an 86-year-old motorist.

Kent County assistant prosecutor James Benison said Wednesday LeAnn Antuma faces a misdemeanor count of a moving violation causing death.

According to authorities, Ione Potter of Cannonsburg died when a school bus driven by Antuma collided with her car on Feb. 24.

Rockford Public Schools Superintendent Mike Shibler tells The Grand Rapids Press Antuma has been assigned to office work in the district’s transportation department.

Benison says arrangements were being made for Antuma to turn herself in for processing.

Messages seeking comment on the case were left Wednesday with defense lawyer Fil Iorio (eye-OHR’-ee-oh) and Grand Rapids District Court.

The victim’s husband, Alvin Potter, tells WZZM-TV he forgives and feels sorry for Antuma.
