Alberta Edmonton school bus driver facing multiple charges after alleged erratic driving

Three impaired driving-related charges have been laid against an Edmonton school bus driver after she allegedly drove erratically while transporting several students.

The 39-year-old woman has also been charged with child endangerment and causing a child to be in need of intervention after her arrest earlier this week.

Police have said there were about 20 elementary students on board when officers stopped the bus around 3:40 p.m. Tuesday in a southwest neighbourhood.

They say her bus was observed weaving in and out of its lane, going over a curb, knocking over a street sign and stopping in the middle of the road.

None of the students were hurt.

The driver is scheduled to appear in court July 24.
