DOVESVILLE, S.C. (AP) - The driver of a Darlington County School District bus has been charged after authorities say she fell asleep at the wheel and crashed a bus carrying dozens of students into an abandoned mobile home.

Cpl. Sonny Collins with the South Carolina Highway Patrol says 37-year-old Lakeisha Graham-Martin has been charged with disregarding a stop sign. Collins says the driver admitted she fell asleep at the wheel.

Darlington County School District officials say four of the 32 students onboard were taken to hospitals with minor injuries.

The driver has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the investigation, and it wasn’t immediately known if she had an attorney.
