DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - Police in New Hampshire say the driver of a car that collided with a school bus carrying elementary students has been accused of driving under the influence of drugs.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1TtJ8zM ) Ashley Compagna of Exeter turned herself in to Durham police Wednesday.

Police say 31-year-old Compagna crashed into the Oyster River School District bus on May 22 as it was on its way to Mast Way Elementary School in Lee.

The students on board were mostly uninjured, but the bus was declared totaled.

Police say a toxicology test determined that Compagna was under the influence of a controlled drug.

She was released on $2,000 bail and is due in court on Sept. 3.

Her attorney declined to comment on the case.
