Emergency personnel take some one off a bus that crash Tuesday, April 18, 2017, west of Richfield, Idaho. The bus was caring children from Carey Jr. High who were on the way to a track meet. A collision report from Idaho State Police says the driver that caused a crash that injured more than a dozen children was asleep, drowsy or fatigued, contributing to the crash. The report lists distraction as another contributing circumstance to the April 18 crash. Charges against the driver, Richard Mecham, are pending, the report says. Mecham is no longer employed by the school district, Superintendent GwenCarol Holmes wrote in a letter Thursday to students, parents and community members.
