DOVER, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman who authorities say was under the influence when she drove a car that collided with a school bus carrying elementary students will spend two weeks in jail.

Ashley Compagna, of Exeter, was sentenced Monday in Dover on charges of aggravated DWI and reckless conduct in the May 2015 crash. Her license was suspended for 18 months and she was fined $1,000 plus a penalty of $240 and ordered to pay restitution.

Police say 31-year-old Compagna crashed into the Oyster River School District bus 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.
