Troopers: Driver Charged After Running Into Craven County School Bus

One man is charged with running into the back of a school bus today as kids headed home from school in Craven County.

Highway Patrol says four children were on the school bus on Highway 17 and Old Washington Road in Vanceboro in Craven County when they say Charles Bagwell of Beaufort County rear-ended the bus.

Troopers say Bagwell was traveling too close and going too fast. He was cited for failure to reduce speed.

Troopers say none of the kids were hurt and did not require medical attention.

Troopers could not tell us what school the students were coming from or their ages, just that they were older elementary school children.
