ST. PAUL, Minnesota — St. Paul police say a school bus driver apparently fell asleep before crashing into three parked cars and nearly striking a building.
A police spokesman says 31-year-old Mohamed Wasuge of St. Paul was mailed a citation Wednesday for careless driving.
Eighteen students were heading to West Side Summit Charter School when the crash happened Monday morning. Two students and an adult bus monitor were briefly hospitalized for aches and pains.
The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1TdrRKe ) reports court records show that Wasuge has been convicted of traffic violations at least 11 times since 2003.
A home phone number for Wasuge could not be found. His employer, Bille Bus Transportation, has not returned several messages from the Star Tribune seeking comment.
