Driver Charged in Bus Accident That Injured Marine Reservists

FORT RUCKER, Ala. (AP) _ The Army says a civilian bus driver has been charged with reckless driving in a crash that injured about two dozen Marine reservists at Alabama's Fort Rucker.

The military also says additional charges could be filed against the driver, whose name has not been released.

A bus carrying Marine Reserve troops from Alabama and Florida overturned Sunday at Fort Rucker, injuring 23 people. Seven Marines remain hospitalized, and three are listed critical condition.

Officials say the charter bus was carrying members of an anti-terrorism group from a training exercise at the Army post. All the injured Marines are connected with a Marine Reserve command located in the Birmingham suburb of Bessemer.
