School Bus Driver To Go To Trial

The driver of a school bus that crashed and injured 17 students in January will go to trial after an expected plea deal in the case fell through Wednesday.

Angelynna Young, 28, of Williamstown was asked by the judge in the case if she agreed to a plea deal because she was guilty, but Young said no. At that point, the Commonweath's attorney withdrew the plea deal, and Young's trial was set to begin next Tuesday.

Young was driving a Grant County school bus Jan. 17 when it went off the road and struck a utility pole. Two students were taken to area hospitals in critical condition after the crash, while Young and 15 other students were treated for minor injuries. The crash happened in Grant County.
